Vegetable cutlet

I always like to eat this cutlet whenever I go out to restaurants. But never tried this at home. This time I just wanted to give a try. Here is the recipe I followed to make this cutlets.

  1. Potato - 2 (I used small potatoes)
  2. Carrots - 1 (shred the carrot)
  3. Beetroot - 1 (small - shred)
  4. Green onion - 2 tbsp
  5. Salt to taste
  6. Cashews - few
  7. Red chillies powder - 1 tsp
  8. Garam Masala powder - a pinch
  9. Besan flour - 1 tsp
  10. Turmeric powder - a pinch
  11. Oil - 1 tsp
  12. Mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp
  13. Cumin seeds - 1/4 tsp
  14. Coriander leaves - few
  15. Bread crumbs - 2 tbsp

First cook one potato, mash it and keep it aside. In the mean time, shred the other potato, carrot, beetroot and cut green onions. Take a pan, pre heat oil, splutter mustard and cumin seeds, add the cashews, fry it for couple of minutes, add the shredded vegetables, mash the cooked potato, add it to the shredded veggies, add turmeric powder, red chillies powder, salt and let it cook for the next 5 to 7 mts. Sprinkle water if necessary. Now add coriander seeds and garam masala powder now and mix it together. Also add the besan flour and mix it with the cooked vegetables and make sure no lumps are formed in it. Turn off the stove and let it cool. Place the bread crumbs in a plate and make small patties (or make shapes you like) and dip it in the bread crumbs. In the mean time, pre heat dosa pan, spray some oil in it. put the dipped patties in the pan and fry it till it becomes golden brown. Serve it hot with tomato ketchup. This is a kid friendly snack I would say. I girls ate two cutlets each with tomato ketchup.
