How to Make Healthy Shrimp Cutlet

When yesterday I went to Muchibazar in Ultadanga I suddenly found a lady was selling very small and live shrimps, which struck my mind to make a good and healthy recipe. Immediately I purchased it, and with that, I purchased spinach and fenugreek leaves. And on the way, I started gathering ideas, How to Make Healthy shrimp cutlets. Here I used Chana Dal /Split Bengal gram for the main binding ingredient with that spinach to enhance the food value,(like palang saak diye cholar dal) again added chopped fenugreek leaves with coriander leaves to make it the healthiest snack. And that chutney/sweet pickle is also made from fresh mint leaves. Here roadside prawn cutlets are available with a medium-sized prawn and blinded with potato and bread crumbs.

Notes

In step 5,  take little care while dropping the shrimps in a wok, do not mesh it, or put more at a time, otherwise, small shrimps will be sticking with the wok. so before using it you put oil in the wok and with the help of a brush, spread it all over the wok in high flame. Now let the smoke starts coming out, make the flame low, and start cooking now.
