How to make Vegetable Cutlet? (Stepwise pictures will be posted soon)
1. Boil the potatoes. Peel the skin and mash it well.
2. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a pan. Add the chopped onions. Saute with a pinch of salt till they turn golden brown.
3. Add the garlic paste and saute till the raw smell goes.
4. Now add the red chilli powder and garam masala powder. Saute till the raw smell disappears.
5. Switch off the flame. Add the boiled vegetables, mashed potatoes and salt.
6. Mix well and make any desired shapes. Keep it aside.
7. Take maida in a bowl. Add 2 pinches of salt and water to make a batter. This batter should neither be thick nor thin. If should have the consistency of idli batter.
8. Dip the cutlets in the maida batter and roll over the bread crumbs.
9. Deep fry in hot oil and serve.


  • Cutlets are usually shallow fried. But I always deep fry them.
  • If the cutlet mixture is soggy, it breaks in the oil while frying. Use a dry bowl for mixing.
  • After peeling the boiled potatoes, allow them to cool before mashing. If we mash while the potatoes are wet, the mixture becomes soggy and the cutlets break while frying. (A useful tip shared by Chef Damu in a cookery show!)
  • Strain the excess water from the chopped and boiled vegetables before adding them.
  • Do not use more water while grinding the ginger garlic paste.
  • If the mixture has become soggy, you can add bread crumbs and mix well.
  • You can also add finely chopped cauliflower or crumbled paneer.
  • If you are preparing bread crumbs at home, do not use fresh bread. Use a few days old salt/sandwich bread. Do not run the mixer grinder continuously while preparing bread crumbs.


Happy Cooking!
