Preparation Time: 30 minutes Cooking Time: 10 minutes Serves: 6

Potato - 2, medium sized,boiled, mashed
Carrot - 1/4 cup, chopped
Beans - 1/4 cup, chopped
Peas - 1/4 cup, fresh or frozen
Water - for boiling veggies
Turmeric Powder - 1/4 tsp
Red Chilli Powder - 1 tbsp
Coriander Powder - 1 tsp
Garam Masala Powder - 1 tbsp
Salt - as required
Breadcrumbs - 3 tbsp or as required
Oil - for shallow frying

Method of Preparation:

1. Boil or pressure cook the vegetables(carrot,peas,beans,potato) for 2 whistles and 5 minutes in low heat. Drain the vegetables using a strainer. 
2. In a mixing bowl, add the boiled vegetables. Add the masala powders. Smash well using a potato smasher. Make small balls and keep aside. It should be thick and not watery. 
3. Spread breadcrumbs in a plate, keep the ball in the centre and gently give a press with palm. Do this on the other side. 
4. Shallow fry the cutlets in an iron tawa or skillet with oil on both sides in medium heat. Cook till its golden brown on both sides. Flip to the other side only after cooking one side. Gently tap against the cutlets to its shape using spatula if required. 


  • You can also add your choice of vegetables like cauliflower, broccoli, beetroot, and soya chunks. But use cooking method for each.
  • Instead of shallow frying, you can also deep fry.
  • Make sure the water is strained well and the vegetables are moisture free.  
  • If the mixture becomes too watery or loose, it will become difficult to hold shape and will absorb oil when shallow frying. So make sure its thick. 
  • Breadcrumbs can be made using a bread. Dry toast the bread in a tawa or microwave. Once it turns hard, pulse it for a few seconds in a food processor. You will get fine bread crumbs. Breadcrumbs are easily available in super markets.
Serving Suggestion:

Best served as evening teatime snacks with tomato ketchup.
