Mixed veggie koftas

Everybody is very health conscious these days and started including lots of greens and fresh veggies into their diet be it salad,soups etc.Every news paper has special articles on healthy eating and also providing the nutritional values and benefits which is very helpful.
Coming to the recipe wanted to make something different today which included many veggies, so tried these delicious koftas, can also be called as cutlets.

Ingredients:
Cabbage - 1cup(finely chopped)
Cilantro - 1/2 cup(finely chopped)
Spring onion - 1/2 cup finely chopped
Potatoes - 2 small
Bread crumbs
Bread - 2 slices(optional)
Red chili powder -1/2 tsp
Salt - add according to taste
Ginger garlic paste - optional
Green chillies - 2 finely chopped
Oil - for frying
Corn flour - 2tsp
Kasuri Methi - 1/2 tsp (optional)

Method:
1.Boil the vegetables(any veggies of your choice,I used cabbage,potatoes)and squeeze out the excess water ,keep them aside(can use the remaining water if you are making kofta curry) . In a large bowl mix all the vegetables,along with boiled & mashed potatoes.
2.Add bread slices(dip in water & squeeze),garam masala,salt,red chili powder,green chillies,spring onion,cilantro,cornflour/besan/maida(I used corn flour) and mix nicely if the mixture is sticky refrigerate it for 10min.
3.Heat oil ,make patties of desired size roll them in bread crumbs and fry in medium flame until they are golden brown in color.
Pan fry:
1.Make the patties and shallow fry them with little oil on each side in a wide pan.
Oven method:
1.Make all the patties and bake them at 300 degrees for 10-15 min ,flip them occasionally.

Hot koftas can be served with tomato ketchup/green chutney.
Note: Using bread is optional ,I read it some where and wanted to try so used them .The koftas/cutlets came out very soft.

Thank you everybody!
@ Ananda : yea similar to cutlets.My idea was to make the mixture into bite sized balls but as I've made them big they slowly settled down as patties. :)
They tasted amazing!
