Cutlets are my all time favorite vegetable snack. But somehow I never tried preparing them at home. This was my first attempt to prepare vegetable cutlet and YESSS... it came out very well :)
So here comes the ingredients and method to prepare tasty vegetable cutlets at home.
Beetroot : 1
Potato : 3
Green Peas - 1 cup
Finely chopped Onion : 1 big
Ginger (Chopped) : 1 tbsp
Garlic (Chopped) : 1 tbsp
Green chilli (Chopped) : 3
Turmeric powder : 1 tsp
Coriander Powder : 1 tsp
Red chilly powder : 2 tsp
Pepper powder : 1 tsp
Garam Masala : 1 tsp
Bread crumbs & Rava mixed: 1 cup
Maida mixed with water : 2 cup
Salt : As required
Oil : for frying
:- Pressure cook the potatoes and beetroot. Microwave peas or you can pressure cook it with very little water till done. Peel the potatoes, beetroot and add peas and mash all of them together. Keep it aside.
:- Take a bowl and mix Maida and water together to form a smooth paste. This should not be a thick paste (watery consistency).
:- Mix Bread crumbs and rava together in a plate and keep it aside for coating the cutlets. Rava will give extra crispiness to the cutlets.
