  • 3 - 4 large size boiled potato
  • 1 Cup onion fine chopped
  • ¼ Cup carrot
  • ¼ Cup green peas boiled
  • ½ Cup bread crumb mixture
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tablespoon kasuri methi
  • 1 teaspoon red chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon chaat masala
  • Oil for shallow frying

Ingredients For Coating

  • ¼ Cup corn starch or potato starch
  • ¼ Cup water
  • ¼ Cup bread crumbs


  • To prepare the mixed vegetable cutlet, first drain the boiled potato and peas in a metal colander for 5 - 10 minutes so that any excess moisture in the vegetable drains out.
  • Next fine chop the remaining vegetables, I prefer using a food processor or electric chopper for the purpose.
  • Now peel and mash the boiled potato. Make sure no chunks remain in the mashed potato.
  • In a large mixing bowl combine mashed potato, boiled peas, chopped vegetables, salt, spices and bread crumbs.
  • Combine all ingredients well to form a smooth mixture. Taste and adjust the seasoning accordingly.
  • Cover with a foil and let it rest in the fridge for 15 - 20 minutes.
  • Once you are ready to fry the cutlet, heat oil in fry - pan over medium heat.
  • Take a tablespoon of cutlet mixture and shape it into a small cylinder. Tap both the sides on the kitchen counter to get flat edges. Similarly, shape all the cutlets.
  • Dip the cutlet in the cornflour mixture and then coat in breadcrumbs.
  • Shallow fry the cutlets in small batches till crisp and golden from all sides.
  • Drain on an oil absorbent paper towel.
  • Serve Mixed Vegetable Cutlet warm with tomato ketchup.
  • If you do not want to shallow fry cutlet immediately, shape them and store in an airtight box in the fridge.



  • To make bread crumb mixture at home, pulse 3 - 4 stale or dry bread slices in the food processor.
  • Use a food processor, to chop or pulse the vegetables for the cutlet. This really makes a difference in the texture of the cutlets.
  • Make sure vegetables are not wet or moist else the cutlet mixture will become water clogged.
  • Boil the potatoes in advance and store them in the fridge. Cold and dry potatoes make the cutlet real crisp.
  • Always grate the potatoes for making the cutlets. Make sure no chunks remain in the grated potato.
  • You can freeze these veg cutlets for 15 - 20 days. Thaw them at room temperature before frying.
  • Always fry cutlet at medium-high temperature oil. If the oil is not hot enough cutlets will turn soggy and not crisp.
  • You can air-fry the veg cutlets as well at 190 degrees Celcius for 20 minutes turning halfway through.
