Vegetable cutlet recipe
Almost every region or country has their own form of cutlet. This is because cutlets are so versatile that you can customize the filling as per your diet or taste. Cutlets or commonly known as patties, are usually finely chopped veggies mixed with mashed potato and flour for binding. You can deep fry or shallow fry them and enjoy with ketchup or green chutney. There is no one specific good vegetable cutlet recipe. If you know your way around the kitchen, there will be no end to the variations you can make to a standard vegetable patties recipe.
In our version, we use egg and breadcrumbs to coat the patties. Once fried, this coating will give them a crispy and crunchy texture. However, patties or cutlets are always served best hot out of the frying pan. You can shape them in rounds or squares and fry only when your guests have arrived.
Onions, potatoes, peas, beans, carrots, capsicum are the base for any cutlet. If you want something different, paneer or mushrooms can also serve the purpose. Season cutlets mildly with spices like turmeric powder, red chilly powder, coriander powder, green chillies and even some chaat masala. Too much masalas can over power the original taste of vegetables so avoid adding too many ingredients and keep it simple. Using this spice mix as the base you can make Corn cutlets, Moong daal cutlet, Paneer cutlet, Kheema or chicken cutlet. For achieving a high protein cutlet content, use soya chunks instead of potatoes.
If you want to try similar recipes, you can use the mixture for tikkis in Aloo Chaat, Ragda Pattice, Stuffed Bread Roll, Vegetable Franky, Kacchi Dabeli and so on.
