Recipe Notes:

  • Most importantly add vegetables of your choice and make them more healthy and nutritious.
  • I have added Oats flour for the binding in this recipe, you can skip this and add bread crumbs as well.
  • Also, I have not deep fried the cutlets, but you can deep fry them for the perfect texture as you get in the restaurants.
  • Corn Flakes adds a nice texture and crunch to these Veg Cutles.
  • You can saute onions and capsicum in this recipe and add to the boiled potato and veggie mixture. However, in this recipe, I have used finely chopped and raw. This also gives a nice crunch to our cutlet.

Serving Suggestions:

  • Serve these veg cutlets hot along with green chutney and tomato ketchup.
  • It also tastes good with a hot cup of tea or coffee, especially during the monsoon.
  • Moreover, you could also stuff this veg cutlet in a roll or a Frankie.
  • You can also serve this with slices of bread or use it as a burger patty.

How to Store them?

  • Veg Cutlet will taste best when served hot, however, if you want to deep freeze them, simply semi fry the patty and let it cool down.
  • Once the veg cutlets are cooled down, put them in zip-lock bags or an air tight container and freeze them for further use.
  • These will stay good for 2 months if packed properly.
  • While reusing veg cutlets, thaw them, and then deep dry or shallow fry and serve it hot.
