Vegetable Cutlet Recipe - Veg Cutlet - How to make Vegetable Cutlets

Vegetable Cutlet Recipe
Vegetable cutlet is my favourite from my childhood days. I'm sure this is the best way to make kids eat veggies. I got the recipe from amma and here it is for you....Whan I was in the middle of clicking my daughter came running to me with the pizzahut stand(in the 2nd pic) and asked to keep it so she was the sole reason for that idea :)
Vegetable Cutlet Recipe

  4. Then coat it with breadcrumbs as show in the below pic.Repeat the same for all other cutlets too. You can deep fry them or toast the cutlets(like what I did) till crispy.Serve the cutlets hot with tomato sauce.

I am sure this is a kid pleaser, you can make innovative shapes and impress the kids. Any fussy eater will sure like this cutlet and ask for one more. You can make this as a tea time snack for kids and serve them hot with tomato sauce - yum combination. As all the veggies are added and if you toasting it then what more do you need - Its a tasty and healthy evening tea time snack.Enjoy ur cutlets guiltfree.

My Notes:

  • You can also add beetroot for a nice color.
  • You can deep fry them if you are making in bulk as it saves time
  • Those who like eggs can use egg for coating and then dip them in breadcrumbs.
  • Amma usually sautes onion and tomato well and then add it to the other other ingredients. You can try this too as tomatoes give a nice flavour.
  • You can prepare the cutlets before hand and refrigerate them, and toast/deep fry when you want it to serve hot. I have tried a day prior to the guests arrived and it was good. So make sure you make the cutlets only a day prior and not more than that as the veggies will get spoiled easily.

  40. cute presentation :-) i have a doubt.. do you add the masala powders and garlic paste to the bread crumbs or to the veggies

    ReplyDelete
  41. @Vidya : The masala powders should be added to the veggies. The breadcrumbs is just for coating the cutlets, u dont need to add anything to breadcrumbs. Hope this clears...

  42. Hi Sharmilee,
    I read this post today while travelling back to home on train, was so tempted that I made this as soon as I reached home.
    Came out wonderful. My kids also loved it.

    Thanks for posting a healthy and tasty recipe.

    Keep it up.
    Thanks,
    Megs

    ReplyDelete
  43. @Megs : Glad to know that it turned out well and ur kids liked it :)

  44. Can I bake these cutlets? Also, can I omit the egg for coating and just add bread crumbs so they stay well put in the oven as they are baking? I've tried using cooking oil to deep fry them and they are awesome but I started baking more for healthier versions.

    Thanks for recipe! :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. @Anon: Yes eggs are just optional...I havent used them too. Ye you can bake them too but am not sure of the temperature and timing, may be you can try and see....else you can toast them in dosa tawa like what I've done which consumes less oil too.

  46. thx u so much mam.it came out very well

    ReplyDelete
  47. What canI use instead of bread crumbs, as i dont have oven?

    ReplyDelete

    1. You can get readymade breadcrumbs else get rusk and powder it. If you skip that,then the crispness will be missing.
