* How does this save the environment?
Well, when the cook needs to expend minimum energy AND recycle left over stuff, that’s going to result in one happy cook. Happy cook definitely is better for the environment than an unhappy one isn’t it?
**The interesting thing about these stuffing’s is they can also be converted into cutlets. Just add crumbled bread slice (without the crust) – so that it absorbs the extra moisture and provides binding and shallow fry it on a tawa.
Also please note that the recipe maker has managed to sneak in four recipes into one post. Energy conservation again!
