Let’s talk about the ingredients for Veg Cutlets Recipe

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.


  • 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.

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!.
