Veg Cutlet


Ingredients:
Beans 100g
Peas 100g
Carrots 100g
Potatoes 1/4 kg
Onions 1 finely chopped
Green chillies 6
Ginger 1 small piece
Dhania powder 2 tsp
Chilli powder 2 tsp
Salt to taste
Coriander leaves 1 bunch
Oil 2 tsp


Method :
1. Wash and cut veg into very fine pieces
2. Pressure cook the veg and potatoes separately without water(Jus fill the cooker vessel with water and place the veg in a small vessel without water. The idea is to have minimum moisture)
3. Chop onions,green chillies and ginger finely
4. Heat oil in a pan and season with jeera
5. Add the chopped onions, chillies and ginger and fry till pink in color and tender
6. Add the mashed potatoes, cooked veg, salt, dry powders and the chopped coriander.
7. Mix well and keep aside
8. When cool, divide into small portions
9. Shape the cutlet,dip in maida batter roll over powdered rusk and shallow fry.

Tips:
1. You may also use egg white instead of maida batter to coat the cutlets
2. You can make the cutlets beforehand and shallow fry it just before serving. This way you can serve them as starters for parties.
3. Shallow frying is better than deep frying since the latter will make the cutlets soggy and this way u also get to eat less oil. :P
4. The cutlet must be hard and dry before frying to have it intact. I generally coat the cutlet with powdered rusk twice or thrice to achieve this.
