Vegetable cutlet

Very good morning :) I made these cutlets on Monday (i.e. 14th this month) It was again the first time I was trying. I knew the recipe but never tried it till Monday :) It was a success indeed. Although initially I thought it would be a huge disaster. :) It came out well. My parents loved it genuinely.

It was a nice treat for this cold weather too :) Hot - crispy cutlets served with tomato ketchup and with the rains pouring outside is a lovely moment I would say :)

I feel everyone should make these cutlets :) The recipe goes as thus.

Ingredients ( Makes around 8-9 cutlets)

2 medium sized potatoes
1 carrot
1 small onion
4 sticks of beans
1/3 cup of green peas (Soaked in water the previous night)
2 - 3 green chillies
1 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp cumin powder
1 tsp red chilli powder
1 tsp sugar
½ tsp turmeric powder
½ cup of coriander leaves (Chopped)
5-6 leaves of curry leaves (Chopped)
1 tsp of cumin seeds
Oil for deep frying
Salt to taste

Around 1 cup or more Semolina (Bomabay Rava) (For coating the cutlets)
½ cup corn flour ( For binding the cutlets )
½ cup of water ( For making the corn flour mix )


Boil all the vegetables i.e potatoes, onion, carrot, chopped beans, green peas. (Boil the potato separately)

Drain all the water from the boiled vegetables. The water content should be as low as possible.

After this, add 1 tsp of oil in a vessel and let it heat.

Then add cumin seeds, chopped curry leaves and chopped green chillies.

Mash the vegetables a little and add the these vegetables into the vessel.

Stir fry for about 5 minutes.

Then add cumin powder, coriander powder, red chilly powder, sugar, turmeric powder, salt and stir fry for about 5 minutes and add the coriander leaves.

Remove this mixture off the flame and let it cool.

In the mean time make a mixture of corn flour and water. It NEED NOT be a thick paste.

After the vegetables cool, make cutlets ( Flat disks ) from the boiled vegetable mixture.

Dip it in corn flour mixture.

Coat it with semolina.

It will be as follows.

Now heat oil in a vessel. Let it heat to the maximum.

Add the cutlets into the oil.

Let the cutlets become close to red color. Keep inverting the cutlets while in oil every 10 seconds.

Remove it off the flame after it becomes reddish in color and place it on a tissue.

Your cutlets are ready to be served. Serve it with pudina chutney or any other chutney or tomato sauce / ketchup.

Very simple :) Too tasy :) You have to make these :)

Take care till I write :)

Happy cooking :) :)
