Vegetable cutlets are great blend of vegetables and spices. These are great as an appetizer, afternoon snack with tea, or as a side dish with dinner.

Recipe makes 10.

Vegetable Cutlets

Ingredients:

  • 2 medium potatoes
  • 1 cup chopped mixed vegetables (green peas, carrots, green beans, corn)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro (green coriander)
  • 2 finely chopped green chilies (adjust to your taste)
  • 1 teaspoon chopped ginger
  • 1 teaspoon salt (adjust to your taste)
  • 1 teaspoon mango powder
  • 3 tablespoon All Purpose flour (plain flour or maida)
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • Oil to fry

Method

  1. Boiled the potatoes until they are tender.
  2. Once cooked, drain the water and let the potatoes cool down.
  3. Peel the skin off and mash the potatoes.
  4. Steam the chopped mixed vegetables.
  5. Make sure to squeeze the vegetables to take the excess water out and Pat dry.
  6. Mix all the ingredients togather; adjust salt and pepper to your taste.
  7. Add 4 tablespoons of water to the All Purpose flour to make a batter and keep aside.
  8. With oiled hands, divide the mixture into 10 equal parts.
  9. Shape into flat round patties about 1/2 inch thick.
  10. Dip each patty in the flour batter, and roll the patty in breadcrumbs and set aside.
  11. Heat the oil on medium high heat in a frying pan.
  12. Frying pan should have atleast 1 1/2 inch of oil. To check if the oil is ready, put one drop of batter in the oil, the batter should come up right away.
  13. Fry a few cutlets at a time until they are golden-brown on both sides.
  14. Repeat this until all the cutlets are done. Serve hot.

Tips:

  1. If the oil is not hot enough, the patties will break.
  2. If the vegetable/potato mixture looks wet, you can add some breadcrumbs.
  3. You can always change the shape of the cutlets to your desired shape.

Serving suggestions:

  1. Vegetable cutlets are best when dipped with Cilantro chutney, or tamarind chutney.
  2. Vegetable cutlets also make great veggie burgers, adding cheese lettuce, tomatoes, chutney or ketchup.

  4. Hi Manjula Aunty,
    I really want to try this dish. I just have one question.. how do I make the breadcrumbs?

    Please help

  5. Dear Manjula Aunty,

    I love your receipes. Have made a few and they have come out really well. It will be great if you can design a weekly menu plan for all the users. This will help coz most of time i fall short of ideas and do not have the required ingredients at home. If i get a menu plan at the beginning of every week i can stock stuff and don’t have to think much on what to cook. Hope to get a positive response from your end.

    Thanks

  6. Hi Manjula Aunty,
    I really want to try this dish. I just have one question.. how do I make the breadcrumbs?
    I went to my local store to buy them… but they didn’t have any.
    Please help.

    1. You can make bread crumbs by tearing a piece of bread into smaller pieces, and then either use your blender or food processor to make them into finer crumbs.

      1. Thanks Erin! 🙂
        I was thinking of doing just that.. but didn’t know if oven use was required.
        I’ll try your method now.

  7. hi aunty i wanna know how to make breadcrumbs . i searched it and found that they use oven.i dont have oven so how can i make it.

  8. Auntie,

    I made a simpler version with just potatoes and then I fried them – the first 4-5 turned out beautifully, but then the rest just fell apart. I know above it said if the oil is not hot enough they will break apart, but I did not change the setting of the heat. I also did not use any bread crumbs or flour but I did mix in cornstarch. Any tips? Thanks.

  9. Hi manjula ji,

    I really like your recipes they very easy to cook and very delicious.
    Thanks for sharing these awesome recipes with us.

    Love
    Neha

  10. Dear Aunty,

    I have seen this video and wanted to try.

    I have a doubt. Instead of deep frying can we semi fry. Put some oil on tava and fry it(like a chapathi).

    Please let me know

  11. Thanks once again from Baton Rouge, Louisiana! My girlfriend and I cooked a light meal for one of our vegetarian friend’s birthday party, and everyone loved all of the dishes! We made these vegetable cutlets and also your masala french fries, only we baked both recipes to cut out a bit of the oil. Also, we served some of your hari chutney on the side, and it really brought it all together wonderfully. So thank you for all of your hard work, it is very much appreciated!

  12. Thank you so much for this recipe and all the others. I tried several and my family loves them all!! With your videos and detailed recipes, its made the whole process so easy and I’m glad I can cook indian food now like my mom and aunties do!

    thanks again sooooo much!

  26. Hi Auntie,

    Its been long since I have posted any comments, not that I hadn’t been trying yr wonderful recipes.

    Offlate I have tried your Kadai Paneer Cutlet, Saffron rice recipes. Except for safron rice the others came out well. Saffron rice flopped bcos I had been hesitant to add the required amount of sugar:-)

    Today I made Palak Paneer, haven’t tasted it yet but am sure it will b delicious. I have added butter instead of the cream other than that I have mostly followed your recipe.

    Thanks for your effort and please teach us more recipes. Will be glad if you can post pav bhaji, veg manchurian.

    Warmest Regards
    Rama

  27. Hi, mam

    Becoz i didn’t get the mango powder here
    so what i can use in option of mango powder?

    Thank u mam

    Pranjal

  28. Dear Aunty!
    All of your recipes are really looking good and yummy too. Thank you very much for taking so much effort to make these recipes. I am going to make this for my 15 month old toddler.

  29. Helo aunty,

    Your receipe is good, traditional, however this is a perfect receipie for incresing weight, too many calries, I have tried making the same using Oven, may not be as tasty or as attractive in looks, however cuts the fat content by 60%, would advice you to levrage Oven and Microwave to give alternatives to deep frying in your recipie…..this wil immensely attract the youths, withouth depriving of taste they can ensure the same tradiational food at low calories 🙂

  30. Hi Aunty

    i had been looking for a sojee recipe and I had come across your website. Could you please share a sojee recipe with me. I will not be making a very large quantity. Approximately between 500g and 1kg of semolina or tasty wheat.

    I await your response.

    Thanks and kind Regards,

    Ashnee Parsotam

  31. Breadcrumbs can be either purchased pre-packaged at the grocery store or you can make your own. Get 2 or 3 slices of white bread and cut off the crust. Put the bread into a food processor and let the blade spin for several seconds and you will have breadcrumbs.

    It’s nothing fancy, just bread that has been turned into very fine crumbs.

  32. manjula ji…thanks 4 ur great recipes..we r enjoying a lot….can u pls tell me what is breadcrumb?How can we prepare that?thanks in advance

  33. I had seen a tip on food network once for wrapping anything in bread crumbs, you should mix very little (about 2 teaspoon of water) to the crumbs and then roll your cutlet in it. I had found the finish far better than the one you get with dry crumbs.

  34. Hello Manjula antie,
    I have made Bread Pakoras, Masala french fries and vegetable culets. They all came out so prefect and yummy. My husband and my daughter like it so much…. I also made Almond and cashew burfi but came out little too sweet. Next time I will only add 1 cup sugar. I will give 5 star to all of your recipes.

  35. salam aunty….it was by chance that i came across this wonderful website of urs….i was looking for naan recipe… found one here… gave it a try and found it excellent… i also tried ur mong daal dosa and vegetable cutlets… they turned out reaally yummy….i cant tell u how much i enjoy watching ur videos and giving them a try… can i plzzz know ‘roghni naan’ or kulcha recipe…. i will be really thankful….

  36. Hello Sandhya,
    Congratulation, Jaya has explained well, good to have variety of food, dals, green vegetables, fruits, dairy product and nuts. I do believe eating every day if possible in morning 5 to 8 almonds (before eating soak almonds for 4 to 5 hours in water and take off the skin) and drinking 2 to 3 glasses of milk. Avoid taking ice cold drinks. After having baby is more important what you eat and some of the old saying really works great. When time comes I can suggest few things. I hope this will help, wish you all the best.

  37. Hi Sandhya,
    I personally don’t believe that certain dishes are necessary while pregnant. I find some of that to be based on tradition, not nutrition. Some traditional beliefs in some families are not healthy such as taking extra ghee. We understand food nutrition better today than a generation or more before us.

    I’m vegetarian and did well through 2 pregnancies. Include items from the important food groups each day such as dal dishes for protein, vegetable dishes to include vitamin rich vegetables like spinach, sooji is rich in iron and protein, yogurt and milk for calcium, fresh fruits for vitamins. Vitamin fortified cereals are also good so long as they are not too sugary.

    Be cautious of foods high in salt. If you purchase pre-packaged foods it’s important to read the nutrition label. Even some pre-packaged frozen food from the Indian grocery store are too high in salt and I don’t buy them.

    I don’t know if this helps you or not, but my point is to not focus on specific dishes, but rather just eat dishes that provide protein, vitamins, calcium, etc. Have variety in you diet as that is the best way to ensure you are getting a good combination of nutrients.

    I don’t want to go on too long, but would be happy to reply if you have further questions. 🙂

  38. Hi,
    Being more specific i was talking about the various dishes that should be taken during pregnancy.. As in a woman needs to take care of health and eat nutritious food during pregnancy, so I just thought of asking if you have any recepies that can be taken… For example Moong Dal Dosa, Besan Puda etc etc..
    Anyways can you please post me the recepies for daldhokli, undhiyo and handavo.. I followed the same way u showed it and tasted really good.. Thanks..

  39. Hi Sandhya,
    From a health and cardiac perspective, CANOLA OIL is the best because it has the least amount of “Saturated” fat that contributes to high cholesterol. The other oils are higher in saturated fat than Canola.

    If you are concerned about oil consumption, then avoid deep fried food. Some traditionally deep fried foods can be baked or shallow fried with Pam oil spray (the Canola oil variety). Ghee (being from butter) has a lot of saturated fat and should be avoided or used sparingly.

    Other Indian savories only taste right if they are deep fried and either must be avoided or taken in small quantities, infrequently.

    You, or whoever is pregnant, can also talk about diet questions to your Obtsetrician. Often they have someone within the office who does the dietary counselling or will refer you to the dietician at the hospital.

    Please post if you have further questions. 🙂

  40. Hi Manjula,
    I tried the vegetable Cutlets shown by you.. Everybody at home liked it a lot.. Thanks for such wonderful receipes.. I want to know that which oil is best to use in our daily routine..? Whether vegetable oil is good or Sunflower oil or canola oil ?? And also the oil to be used for pregnant women..? Do you have any plans of putting up some healthy vegetarian food to be eaten during pregnancy..?

  41. Hi Pinky,
    I am also from Pakistan,just to let you know that mango powder is called Amchoor.May be this would help you.

  42. hi Manjula how are you.i come from PAKISTAN.plz tell me about mango powder?if it is not available here so what is its alternate?

  43. Manjulaji, can you please post receipes for daldhokli, handavo and undhiyo. Your receipes are amazing and if followed exactly the way you have shown they come out perfect. Thanks for doing that.

  44. Thank you so much Mrs. Manjula for your answer and advice.
    Thank you dear Jaya for the explanation about oil, very useful indeed.
    Sorry it took me such a long time to write back!!!

  45. hello Manjula auntie,
    namaskar! i come from chennai, currently living in toronto and am a strict vegetarian. i have been watching all your videos, they are all wonderful, and tasty. I would be even happier if i can get some south indian recepies too. Unfortunately i do not know the perfect recepies for those. I would be really thankful if you could help in this regard.
    Waiting for your reply.
    Ramnath

  46. Hi Alessandra,
    Olive oil has a lower smoking temperature which means it will get very hot much quicker than the other vegetable oils, so that would be my only concern. But if you are used to deep frying with olive oil then you should be fine.

    Secondly, if Canola oil is available in Spain it is the best oil from a health perspective because of all the oils it has the lowest content of “saturated fats” which contribute to problems with increased cholesterol. 🙂

  47. Dear Mrs. Manjula,
    Thank you so much for all your recipes. I’m learnig a lot and everything is delicious. I’d like to ask, please, which kind of oil is better to use? I live in Spain and olive oil is very good, but maybe a littke ‘thick’ for certain dishes.

    Thank you
    Best regards

    Alessandra

  53. Hello Rajdeep,

    Thank you very much for the tips. We don’t eat egg, so, I will try plantain.

    Thank you once again.

    Warm regards,

  54. hi geeta
    instead of potato u can use plantain .boil them and remove them from boiling water as soon as they are done dont let them stay in boiling water as they will absorb moisture,peel them and remove the extra moisture with paper towel and grate them i made kabab with them and they were wonderful.u can use egg wash instead of maida if u eat eggs.and then no need to use bread crumbs, i put frozen methi in them and they came out wonderful

  55. Hello Geeta, You can use corn starch instead of Maida, instead of potatoes you can use paneer because you need a binding agent I am not sure for your third question but if I am you I will just try it.

  56. Dear Smt. Manjula Ji,

    I love to watch your recipes as they are very simple, finer details are explained and very neatly done.

    I am a budding cook at home. Three queries about the vegetable cutlet –

    1. Can I use corn starch instaed of Maida to dip before rolling over bread crumps?

    2. Can I use chiroti rava OR roasted peanut powder instead of bread crumps?

    3. What else can I use instead of potato as binding agent as my husband does not prefer potato.

    Thank you very much.

    Warm regards,
    Geeta

  57. Hi Manjula,

    Thankyou for publishing your cookery video’s. I have a genetic dietary condition and because your food is all vegetarian, it is, or can be adapted to be low protein (I’m unable to eat high protein foods). I will surely be trying some of your recipes soon, your video’s are well constructed and easy to follow.

    Jamie
