veg-cutlets-recipe

An excellent way to make kids eat the vegetables as snack. You can make the pre-preparation and freeze/refrigerate too.So this is a nice idea to use this as birthday party recipe. While making in bulk,its better to deep fry as pan frying will be time consuming.

INGREDIENTS: (Makes 8 pieces as shown in the picture)

Potato,small 2 (equivalent to 1 cup mashed)
Other mixed veggies 1/4 cup
Bread 2 slices
Garam masala 1/2 tsp
red chilli powder 1 tsp
Coriander leaves,chopped 3 –4 tblsp
Bread crumbs 1/2 cup
Maida 2 tblsp
Salt As needed
Oil For frying

Method:

  1. Pressure cook potato in a vessel and other chopped veggies together in another vessel for three whistles. Just sprinkle a tsp of water in the chopped veggies,that is enough. For potato just cut into 4 and add little water.
  2. Peel off the skin and mash the potato and add other veggies to it. Make sure there is no water.

  3. Tear the bread pieces and crumble it by grinding in a mixer.This step can be skipped and you can directly add to the veggies as well. But I prefer this way for even mixing.

  4. Add it to the veggies along with garam masala,red chilli,salt and coriander leaves and mix together.

  5. Make a thick paste(like idly dosa batter consistency) out of maida and water.
  6. Make equal and desired shapes out of the veggies and set a side,I made it simple and round. Dip it in the maida paste one by one.

  7. Quickly take it out and coat both sides with the bread crumbs. Repeat the process for the rest and arrange in plate.

  8. If you are pan frying then just drizzle with some oil over a hot non stick pan and arrange 4 at a time and cook in a medium flame both sides,until crisp.

  9. Enjoy hot with tomato sauce/ketchup with tea/coffee/cool drinks.

Notes:

  • Adding cauliflower gives nice flavour to the cutlets. Adding beetroot give nice colour.
  • Deep frying gives a good look with even cooking of the outer layer.
  • You can add gram flour/kadalai maavu in place of the bread crumbs in the mixing part along with the veggies. But for coating dry bread crumbs are best.
  • You can make bread crumbs by sun drying bread for some time until it turns crisp and powder in a mixer. Also you can try micro waving the bread slices.

  58. Vanisree, You can prepare until coating with bread crumbs(until step 7) and refrigerate it if using within a day or freeze it if you want ot use it later. but if you freeze it,once you thaw it, you should use it. You can freeze upto 15 days ...No specific preservatives needed

  60. Dee cook, Microwave upto 4 bread pieces arranged in the micro wave tray can be micrawaved in high for 5-8 minutes,ensuring that you have to turn the bread pieces for each minute. Make sure you dont burn at any places,if its starts browning,just stop and give standing time(say 3-4 minutes) and you will get crispy bread slices,then you can break it and powder them in the mixer to get bread crumbs...

    1. You can make and freeze the cutlets before frying and fry it when ever needed by defrosting it.
