Coming back to the stream after a long break due to vacationing in India and also due to my niece’s marriage. So happy to be with them during the time of happiness. Here two separate people became one, created a new family, where two hearts and lives are united. May the love for each other lasts for ever. Wish you both a very joyful and blessed married life. Thank God for showering blessings on the newly wedded couple.

This is my first cutelt recipe in the blog. Yes, I am late here to add a cutlet recipe!! Vegetable Cutlet, a very popular snack which kids love.. Different kinds of cutlets are available like, chicken cutlet, vegetable cutlet, jackfruit cutlet, bread cutlet, mutton cutlet, beef cutlet, prawns cutlet, tinned tuna cutlet, soya chunks cutlet, the list is endless.. We can make all of these at home. Vegetable Cutlets we can make for parties or get-togethers.

Today I go for the Mixed Vegetable Cutlets or we can call it Vegetable Cutlet. Not much effort one has to put in to make these cutlets. I used the common vegetables we use in our kitchen, Carrots, Potato, French Beans, Cabbage and Onions. Along with these vegetables, adding little spices would result in the making of these yummy cutlets. You cannot resist in finishing it up in no minutes!!

We sisters and brothers grew up eating these cutlets in the evenings as a ‘nalumani palaharam’, (evening tea time snack), as Mom used to get it from the nearby bakery on her way back to home from school. So we all used to share it. Childhood memories rekindle most of the time when I start writing content for my recipes!!

In a small bowl, make a medium thick paste with all-purpose flour and water. Make the bread crumbs and keep it aside.

Next sauté Potatoes, Carrots, French beans and Cabbage on a medium flame. When these veggies get soft, cover and cook for about ten minutes.

My Recipe Notes on Mixed Vegetable Cutlets

1. You can use these cutlets to fill in the burger buns too..

2. When you cook veggies, you can sprinkle little water, so that these veggies won’t get burned.

3.How to make Bread Crumbs: If you don’t have bread crumbs, take few pieces of fresh bread. Heat a non- stick pan, place a bread slice. Dry roast the bread slice on both sides until golden brown. Take a blender or a mixer and powder it. Bread crumbs are ready.. Yes, it’s quite simple!!

4. You can freeze these shaped cutlets in an air tight container or a zip lock bag in the freezer for one or two months. Bring them to room temperature and then deep fry it when you want it to serve hot.

5. Deep frying is of course better than shallow frying.

6. If you add beetroot, you will get good coloured vegetable cutlets.

7. Those who prefer egg coating, take two egg whites and add all-purpose flour, mix well. Then dip them in bread crumbs.

8. In case your vegetable mixture looks moist, add little more bread crumbs and mix well.

9. Add salt to the vegetable mixture just before making shapes to avoid the mixture getting wet.
