What is Veg Cutlet?

Veg cutlet is a patty made up of vegetables including boiled potaotes, 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. 

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Veg Cutlets

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. I am not too sure about any other binding agent. 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 chilli flakes/Italian seasoning/ cheese etc can be added.

  • Use cold/refrigerated potatoes
  • Shred the potatoes instead of mashing them
  • Squeeze out the excess moisture of other vegetables used
  • Add extra bread crumbs if required
  • Do not miss coating the vegetable cutlets with the bread crumbs
  • While coating the cutlets, dip them in the slurry using one hand and use the other hand to coat the crumbs. This way it will be a convenient and non-messy task.
