This recipe is made when we have some guest coming home at snack time or when we want to eat light or when we have a late dinner out but don’t want to go hungry. Most of the time the chutneys are there in the fridge so don’t have to do much. Plus we make the patties extra as they taste yum the next day for breakfast. These patties are used by hubby in his inventive breakfast! He will put it in a sandwich, eat it with ketchup and with his favorite Indori sev.
