Aloo Cutlet Recipe | How to make Crispy potato Cutlets

What is aloo cutlet?

Tasteful and absolutely crispy patty made with boiled potatoes with simple flavors of fennel seeds, kick of chaat masala is aloo cutlet. These are the kind of cutlets prepared in the Indian railway pantry and served to the passengers on board. These make me absolutely nostalgic. However, talking more about the cutlets they are crispy till their last bite and that’s what makes them more special.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Aloo Cutlet recipe

Boiled potatoes form the base of these cutlets, no vegetables have been added because I wanted to make a cutlet recipe that is fuss-free and can be prepared with few ingredients. A slurry is used to coat bread crumbs on the cutlets and this is what makes all the difference. If you don’t have bread crumbs make instant bread crumbs at home. It makes the aloo cutlets so crusty that even when they come to the room temperature they don’t lose their crunch. Whenever you are using boiled potatoes for any recipe, few things should be kept in mind, the same have been listed in my post for jeera aloo recipe.

6. Put the cutlets in hot oil. Important: To panfry them, drizzle little oil on a pan or skillet and fry cutlets on low flame till crisp. I have shallow fried them which mean using oil up to half of the height of the item being fried. And deep frying too is an option wherein you have to have enough oil to cover the item being fried.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
