Veg cutlet is a patty made up of vegetables including boiled potatoes, bread slices, and few spices. Veg cutlet is a good breakfast option or can also be prepared for high tea etc. It can be served green chutney or tomato ketchup or can be converted in a full-fledged veg burger.
There could be so many recipes for vegetable cutlets. This is my mother’s recipe. This is how she makes them. I always used to struggle a lot with the texture of vegetable cutlets. Then I tried this recipe and loved the results. Vegetable cutlets have seen different binding agents- bread, bread crumbs, rice flour, semolina, and many others. In this, I have used bread and bread crumbs and the bread crumbs are the dried ones. Try at your own risk, please! I make sure to boil and refrigerate the potatoes a night before the morning I am planning to make the vegetable cutlets. This is very important. Basically, we want cold potatoes, refrigerated ones. I have used cabbage, cauliflower, carrot and green peas. You can use the vegetables of your choice. I have used white bread but you can go for brown or multigrain bread. You can choose to season it the way you like. I have kept it very basic but chili flakes/Italian seasoning/ cheese etc can be added.
