Turkey Patties ~ Turkey Muttilu

Turkey Patties before baking

Making these turkey patties is simple and all the ingredients are simple regular Indian spices. Based on our preference we can make  them as either appetizer or burger or pita sandwich. I mentioned baked version here but you can shallow fry or deep fry them. Using fat meat (white or red) in making patties or kebabs keeps them more moist. For daily consumption, I recommend to use the baking method with extra lean meat for a healthier diet. If you are making them for holidays and parties you may use little oil in baking or fry them in oil. When I first baked these patties, I didn’t use any oil other than spray and the outcome is good and my guests appreciated  them as well.

Turkey breast or extra lean turkey is very low in saturated fat and very high in protein. So I used them in my weigh loss period as my protein source.

Enjoy these guilt free turkey patties for this thanksgiving with an Indian twist.
