Baked/Fried Vegetable Cutlet and an update

It has been months that I have prepared this vegetable cutlet. It is one of my hubby's favourite. Though previously, I used to deep fry it oil, this time I tried baking it. Initially I was skeptical about baking, as I am still learning as a baker. Seeing a lot of bakers and their blogs I got inspired and decided to bake it. I was lucky! The Vegetable cutlet turned out to be very tasty and great looking.

With no further delay, here is the recipe of Baked/Fried Vegetable Cutlet


1 cup of vegetables which includes Beans, carrot, Peas, cauliflower, Potato
1 tbsp of chick peas
1 tsp of chilli powder
Salt to taste
1/4 cup of cilantro, finely chopped
1 tbsp of cashew nuts (optional)
1 tsp of coriander powder
1 tsp of cumin powder
1 tsp of cumin seeds
A pinch of Hing
1 tsp of Ginger garlic paste
Oil for deep frying. If baking, you will need 2 tsp of oil to prepare the mixture.

To dip:

A thin mixture of 1 tbsp of all purpose flour and water.

To Coat:

1 cup of bread crumbs


Pressure cook all the vegetables and chick peas till you get 3 hisses.

Immediately release the pressure and remove the vegetables from the cooker.

Separate the potato alone and peel and mash it in a bowl.

Place all the other vegetables in a tissue paper and squeeze to remove excess water.

In a Pan, add oil, cumin seeds and saute them. Now add ginger garlic paste and cashew and saute.

Add the vegetables and mix well. Add chilli powder,turmeric powder,cumin and coriander powder and mix well. Now add salt.

Saute them until the water is evaporated.

Now add this mixture to the mashed potato along with finely chopped cilantro and mix well.

Take small amount of this mixture and make it into a cutlet shape, it can be round, oval or heart shaped and dip it in the all purpose flour and water mixture and immediately coat them with bread crumbs. This step needs to be done very quick so that we can prevent the cutlets from absorbing more water.

To Bake the Vegetable cutlet:

Preheat the over to 375 degree F and Place these cutlets in the baking pan for 15 -20mts.

Now remove the pan and turn the cutlets and bake it for another 15 mts.

Remove and serve hot with Chilli/Tomato sauce.

To Fry the Vegetable cutlet:

In a Pan, add enough oil and deep fry them until they are brown.

Serve hot with Chilli/Tomato sauce.

Note: In either case, make sure that the cutlet mixture has less moisture it in. This will help in getting a crispy vegetable cutlet.
