Vegetable Cutlets

Vegetable cutlets are my favorite weekend evening snack. My mother would make this very often when we were in Bhopal. We would come back home from swimming and have cutlets with bread and tomato ketchup.
I remember having vegetable cutlets at Suvidha Restaurant at CST Mumbai in the early 90's. They were the best I ever had in my life. Here is the recipe for vegetable cutlets.

3 potatoes
1/2 cup boiled spinach
1/2 cup peas
1/4 cup beetroot
1/2 teaspoon garam masala
salt for taste
1 teaspoon red chili powder or as per taste
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
3 tablespoon lemon juice
1 cup semolina
2 bread slices(The side slices work great!)
3 tablespoon chopped cilantro or coriander
oil for deep frying


Boil the potato, beetroot and peas till tender. Just soak the bread slices for a second and squeeze all the water. Mash all the vegetables and bread slices well. Add all the powders, lemon juice and salt as per taste. Make small balls from the dough and flatten each ball to make a cutlet. Deep fry in hot oil till golden brown on both sides. Serve hot with tomato ketchup or coriander/cilantro chutney.

Preparation time: 45 minutes
Serves: 3-4
