Vegetable Cutlet

(Easy and yummy vegetable cutlet)

Cutlet is a simple and tasty bite along snack with tea or coffee. It is the universal favorite for quite a lot number of people including me. Cutlet is an easy option when it comes to serving guests for tea or while Ramadan when hot and fried snacks turn out to be a must for again a lot of people including me. Especially when we have the masala ready in stock. It just takes minutes to dip them in egg white/ flour paste , coat them in bread crumbs and deep fry in hot oil. All four in my home love cutlets and that is the main reason, cutlet is a regular in my home. Love these crispy and crunchy golden brown beauties.

The recipe I have shared here is that of a easy vegetable cutlet where I have cooked with the available veggies. We can add the vegetables according to the availability at home. We can also add cooked and  minced meat to the masala to make chicken/ beef cutlets. I will share a detailed version of the non vegetarian cutlet recipe soon.

Off to the recipe,


  1. Potato                                               – 2 boiled and mashed
  2. Green peas                                       -1/4 cup cooked
  3. Onion                                                – 2 chopped

  8. Garam Masala                               – 3/4 tsp

  10. Coriander leaves                          – a fistful chopped
  11. Salt                                                  – As needed
  12. Oil                                                    – 3 tbspn+ To fry
  13. Egg white  *                                   – 1 beaten
  14. Bread crumbs                               -1 to 1.5 cups As needed

* – For a fully vegetarian version, You can substitute egg white with a flour paste (1/2 cup maida mixed in 1 cup of water).


  • Boil and mash the potaoes and green peas and set aside. Care should be taken that the green peas is only partly mashed { This gives a biting texture to your cutlet}.
  • Heat 3 tbspn of oil in a kadai and saute together the chopped- onion, green chillies, ginger and  carrot until it turns golden brown.
  • Add salt, 3/4 tsp of turmeric powder, 1 tsp of pepper and 3/4 tsp of garam masala and saute until the raw smell of the powders are gone.
  • Add in the mashed potatoes and green peas mix well. Throw in the coriander leaves and mix well.
  • Make small patties of desired shape, dip them in egg white, roll in bread crumbs and fry until golden brown in hot oil.

Dunk your crispy crunchy veg cutlets in ketchup or the sauce of your choice and enjoy it hot with a cup of tea or coffee.

Happy Dunking!!!!!!!!!!!

Niznaz notes:

  1. I usually add onion, green chillies, ginger and carrot all together to my food processor bowl and chop it together to make life easy.
  2. We can add in any vegetable of our choice to the carrot.

Love and Regards,
