Baked Green Peas Palak Cutlet

I just wanted to prepare a nutritious cutlet for yesterday's evening snack. I usually bake my cutlets. Very afraid of deep frying them. Had some palak puree left from an earlier project, and had lots of green peas. So I decided on this cutlet. It was very yummy. We had it with tomato sauce. It had a crisp crust and a very soft interior. Hubby liked it a lot and the plate was emptied in less than 15 minutes. It is a very light snack.
