Oats: Use quick, whole, or instant oats for making the powder. You can use oats flour as well. If you buy a packet of rolled oats for this cutlet recipe, do try my oats khichdi, homemade oat milk, or oats chilla.
Walnuts: Make sure they are not rancid otherwise, the cutlet might taste bitter. If you are allergic to nuts, skip adding them.
Vegetables: Carrot, green peas, onion, potato
Seasoning: Salt, red chilli, turmeric, cumin powder, ginger paste, and oregano
Oil for frying the cutlet
My Tried and True Tips
Boil potatoes and store them in the refrigerator. The chilled, grated boiled potatoes are the perfect binder for this oats cutlet recipe. Usually boil a big batch of potatoes over the weekend, cool them at room temperature, and store them in the refrigerator.
If cutlets are not binding, add more boiled potatoes or powdered oats.
You can dip the cutlet in cornstarch and water slurry for a crispy texture.
Double the recipe for a bigger crowd. The recipe doubles just fine. But if you double the recipe, use a larger frying pan and fry cutlets in small batches.
Switch out the add-ins. The recipe is so versatile to make it based on your taste preferences and available ingredients. Feel free to season it with ingredients of your choice.
