I haven't made cutlet for a long time because
when ever i try to deep fry these patties, it
would crumble in to pieces:(. Then heard some
where that you don't have to deep fry them you
can cook on a non stick pan [Dosa kallu] .
So thought would give it a try and if it is
still a disaster bye bye to cutlets.I tried it
today and it turned out pretty good. I am glad
that i found a perfect way to cook these patties
because cutlet is my son's favourites.
Potatoes- 3 peeled and chopped
frozen vegetables -1 cup
green chillies-2-3 chopped
ginger-1tsp thinly chopped
garam masala - 1/2 tsp
turmeric powder-1/2 tsp
salt- to taste
bread crumbs-1 cup
coriander leaves-2 tbs chopped
oil/butter-2 tsp ,more for cooking the patties.
Cook frozen vegetables and potatoes in
microwave or pressure cooker.Mash them well and
In a pan add oil ,chopped shallots,ginger,green
chillies and saute until raw smell of shallots
disappears.Add the mashed vegetables,garam
masala,turmeric powder,salt and coriander
leaves , mix well. Let it cool.
In a bowl add the flour and water and make a paste to dip
When the vegetables mix is cool to the touch
make round patties and dip them in the flour
mix and coat them with bread crumbs.Cook the
cutlets in a non stick pan with a little bit of
oil/butter. Cook both sides until they are golden
brown.Serve hot with tomato ketchup.
Note: if you are out of bread crumbs, toast the
bread in a toaster and grind it in a blender.
