how to make veg cutlet
1.Chop all the vegetables and place them on a steamer plate. Steam cook or boil vegetables with salt. Drain the excess moisture. Keep it aside.
2. Heat oil in a pan. When the oil is hot enough, add finely chopped onion, ginger, green chili and saute on medium flame till onion becomes pinkish in color.
3. Add the steam cooked vegetables, saute well for 3 – 4 minutes in medium flame. Transfer the contents to a plate and allow it to cool.
4. Mash them well.
5. Add finely chopped coriander leaves, red chilli powder, turmeric powder, garam masala powder, roasted cumin powder, coriander powder, and mix well. Finally, add lemon juice, mix well.
6. Add 1/4 cup of bread crumbs to it and mix all the ingredients well to make a non-sticky dough. I have added oats flour as it is healthier than breadcrumbs. I used around 4 tablespoons of oats flour. Divide the dough into equal sized balls and keep aside. Gently flatten the balls into patties. Keep aside.
7. Add maida or besan and rice flour to a bowl. Add water and make a thin paste. Keep aside. The bowl should be wide enough to place the patty inside.
8. Spread breadcrumbs on a plate. Add 1/2 teaspoon of pepper powder and mix well. Keep aside.
9. Take each patty, dip them in the maida flour mixture, and then place them on bread crumbs. Coat it with bread crumbs on all the sides. Repeat the same steps with rest of the patties. Keep it aside for 5 – 10 minutes so that the breadcrumbs stick to the patties.
10. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a tawa or a frying pan. Place the patties onto the tawa and cook on medium flame. Flip them to the other side and cook until it becomes golden brown. You get perfect cutlet when deep fried but this shallow frying is a healthy option while making cutlets at home. So I often follow the shallow frying method for making cutlets for kids. But if preparing for a party, I always deep fry them in medium flame.
11 Using a slotted spoon, transfer cutlet to a serving plate. Serve veg cutlets hot with green chutney or tomato ketchup.
