Palak Oat Bran Cutlets

For an evening I wanted to prepare a cutlet which was nutritious and tasty. I had a bunch of palak in my fridge. The idea for this combination suddenly crossed my mind. This was very easy to prepare and delicious. We enjoyed it with tomato ketchup. I am sending this to HCC-Healthy Bakes hosted by Priya and started by Smitha.
