Starting your morning on a healthy note is very crucial as it sets the tone for the rest of your day. And, having a filling and nutrient-rich breakfast should be an indispensable part of one’s routine because it is your first meal after a prolonged overnight fast. While many prefer having cutlets, they are not the healthiest breakfast options as they are usually deep-fried. But, what if we say that you can give your favourite cutlets a healthy spin?
Roshni Chopra, who regularly shares easy and healthy recipes with her followers, recently took to Instagram to post the recipe for “protein-packed, healthy and yummy” quinoa corn cutlets. Take a look.
Here’s how you can make quinoa corn cutlets at home.
*Boil quinoa in water for five minutes, till it is fully cooked (1 cup quinoa in 2 cups of water).

You can pair these delicious cutlets with hung curd dip or any sauce of your choice. If you are wondering how to prepare a healthy hung curd dip, try this recipe shared by dietitian Lavleen Kaur.
