How to make Mixed Vegetable Cutlet Recipe
To begin take the mashed potato in a large bowl. Add in the carrots, capsicum, paneer, onion, garlic, ginger into the mashed potatoes. Mash all the ingredients well using a food processor, your hands or a potato masher until all the ingredients have come together and mashed well. There will be a subtle coarseness in the mixture, allow that to be as it adds to the texture.
Add in the remaining ingredients except the oil and mix well. Check for salt and spice levels and adjust to suit your taste. You can add more or less of the chillies if you find the recipe too spicy.
Shape this mixture into small lemon size balls and flatten them a little between your palms. Dip these flat cutlets in the beaten egg and then followed by the bread crumbs.
Preheat a skillet on medium heat; place the cutlets a few at a time on the skillet, drizzle oil on them and roast them on medium heat until they are crisp and browned on both sides. Continue the same process with the remaining cutlets.
Serve the delicious spicy hot Mixed Vegetables Cutlets along with chutney or a yogurt dip.
