Mutter dry fruit Kebab (green pea cutlet)

Mutter Dry Fruit Kebab (Green Peas Cutlets)

Time is for triple celebration as 6th March is Holi, a festival full of colours. 6 th March 2014 was the day which gave me an identity as food blogger so its my blog's first birthday. One more achievement is associated with it as today I posted my 100th blog post. So big three reasons to celebrate.

To celebrate these three good reasons I prepared a classy mutter kebabs filled with dry fruits cooked in pure ghee
