I guess, a lot of people grow up with an aversion towards vegetables. I have seen moms trying all her skills to make kids eat veggies daily. Well, it’s not only kids who run away from vegetables; many grownups avoid fresh vegetables simply because they often lack taste
It is a very handy recipe when you are trying to finish up the vegetables lying in your fridge. These vegetable cutlets are lot healthier than the deep fried ones and they have a wonderful taste.


  •  Finely chopped beans-1cup
  • Finey chopped carrots-1/2cup
  • Green peas-1/2cup
  • Boiled and mashed potatoes-1cup
  • Finely chopped onion-3/4th cup
  • Red chilli powder-1/2tsp
  • Black pepper powder-1/2tsp
  • Turmeric powder-1/4tsp
  • Chat masala-1/2tsp
  • Chopped corriander leaves-1tbsp
  • Salt-to taste
  • Oil-to shallow fry
  • Bread crumbs
  • Eggs-2 or (4 tsp Maida (all purpose flour) made to a thick paste with sufficient water)
  • Boil all the vegetables with a little water until tender. I prefer cooking it in the microwave.7minutes on high power should do the job. Drain water
  • Heat oil in a pan.
  • Add the onions, salt and sauté till transparent.

  •  Add the veggies and continue to sauté till soft.
  • Add turmeric, chilli powder, chat masala,pepper powder and more salt if required
  •  Add the mashed potatoes and continue to sauté for a few minutes.

  • Switch off stove and let it cool.
  • Mash the misture lightly with a masher/wooden spoon.
  •  Add coriander leaves, bread crumbs and a beaten egg. (Vegetarians can avoid the egg and increase the quantity of bread crumbs instead)

  • From this mixture, roll out small balls and pat them to the shape of cutlets.
  • Dip each cutlet in beaten egg mixture and drop these cutlets in a plate filled with bread crumbs.(vegetarians can dip it into the maida solution)
  •  Toss it over and make sure that it is well coated with a layer of bread crumbs
  • Let the cutlets sit for about 15mins.
  •  Heat some oil in a pan sufficient for shallow frying.

  •  Fry these cutlets on both sides on medium low till they are well done and crisp.
  • Tip: Prepare a single cutlet with coating first and fry to check if the veggies have bonded well. If the cutlet appears to be breaking off, add a little more bread crumbs to the veggie mixture.
  •  Serve hot with ketchup.
