Kale peas corn patties

Jump to Recipe

People who know me know I convert anything and everything into a soup or a patty/ cutlet:D. I find it the easiest way to get my pulses in. While I always theoritically want to consume a good source of protein every meal, if I forget to soak a pulse the previous night, then my only quick options are cottage cheese, soya chunks and cheese of course :D. While I am more than happy to have cheese every single meal I know it’s not a wise choice :D. Those are the days these cutlets totally come so handy. I try and make a batch over the weekend (typically a saturday) and use it through the week (that is if Adyant decides to keep some for me :).

When my sil had come here in January, she was amazed to see what all I was adding/ converting to a patty but now she has become a pro too and I couldn’t be happier :). So here I am blogging this hoping to convert more people. This is a total time saver and stores/ freezes beautifully; tastes amazing; doesn’t take long to make; healthy and so many veggies easily get sneaked into this.

And oh, Adyant hates hates green peas. It was initially funny for me to see how he would literally take green peas out of his mouth (if it found its way to his mouth without his knowledge :D). Adyant stands right next to me, helping me out with most of my kitchen attacks. He knows exactly what goes into any of my dishes. He decides whether he wants to try the dish I am making or not. Almost always, he enjoys any kind of patties/ cutlets I make. Infact last week I had made falafels & Adyant helped me grind the white channa. When I was trying to feed him boiled channa as sundal, he said NO to it and told me ‘Amma, please give me this channa as a cutlet. I don’t like it like it like this’. While I would be most happy if he ate channa or green peas in its original form, for now I am not complaining at all since I am not really sneaking this in without his knowledge. He clearly knows what has gone in and still chose to have it and LOVED IT! Yayyyy, I am a very happy amma with this dish :).

Course: Appetizer, Snack
Cuisine: International
Servings: 12 pieces
  • 6 nos big kale leaves
  • 1 cup frozen green peas
  • 1 no American sweet corn
  • 8 no small garlic pods
  • 1 no small onion
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 tsp hot smoked paprika powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp grated processed cheese optional
  1. Prep work – Wash the kale leaves, sweet corn and frozen peas. Peel garlic pods.

  2. Place 8 garlic pods, 6 kale leaves, 1 sweet corn (whole) and 1c frozen peas in a steamer and steam for 7-10 minutes till the veggies are cooked (I have a vegetable steamer but you can use an idli steamer as well).

  3. Turn off the heat and set it aside for 10-15 minutes till it cools down.

  4. Once the veggies cool down, remove the veggies from the steamer and place it on a clean kitchen towel/ kitchen tissues and remove excess water from the veggies.

  5. Place the veggies in a food processor/ blender/ mixer jar and pulse till you have a coarse mixture (you don't need to grind it into a fine paste).

  6. Place the veggie mixture in a medium size bowl.

  7. Peel 1 small onion and pulse it in the food processor/ blender or chop it finely. Add this to the veggie mixture.

  8. Into the bowl, add 1/2c rolled oats, 1/2t salt, 1t hot smoked paprika powder, 3T grated processed cheese (optional).

  9. Mix everything together.

  10. Roll out equal plum sized balls out of the dough, flatten the ball to form a cutlet/ patty and set it aside on a plate.

  11. Heat a heavy bottom pan/ dosa pan with some oil.

  12. Add in the patties & fry on both sides on medium heat till each side turns golden brown.

  13. Drain excess oil on a kitchen towel.

  14. Serve hot alongside some chai!

Recipe Notes
  1. If you find the mixture a little too wet, then add some more rolled oats.
  2. Alternately, you can also add some pulsed walnuts/ almonds/ flax seed powder/ bread crumbs/ bread pieces instead of adding more oats. 
  3. Adyant loves these patties and so, I don’t make these spicy. However, feel free to add some finely chopped green chillies to the coarse veggie mixture. 
  4. Check and adjust for salt & seasoning as per your taste buds. I find this perfect for me and Adyant.
  5. You can bake or air fry these patties as well. 
  6. Cheese is optional but adds a lovely bite to the patties. 
  7. You can totally play around with the proportion of kale, sweet corn and frozen peas. 
  8. You can use normal red chilli powder if you don’t have the hot smoked paprika. But trust me, please do yourself a favour and buy this (you will find it online worst case). This is such an amazing spice powder. 
  9. You can swap kale for spinach if you don’t have kale on hand. Honestly, like I mentioned above just mix and match any veggie/ any pulse :D.
