Vegetable Cutlets (Baked)


As it was cold and cloudy outside, I decided to make Veg cutlets as an evening snack. Keeping calories in mind, I decided to bake them instead of deep frying in oil (the recipe uses only 1tsp of oil). I used simple ingredients to make these (no need for bread crumbs). This recipe makes about 20 medium sized cutlets.


Ingredients:

  1. Potatoes - 2 big (peeled and cut into small cubes)
  2. Mixed Vegetables - 2 cups (carrots, peas, beans, corn)
  3. Salt - as required
  4. Water - for boiling the vegetables
  5. Red chilli powder - as required
  6. Corn Flour - 4 table spoons (or as required to shape the dough)
  7. Cilantro - 1/4 cup (chopped finely)
  8. Amchoor powder - 1 tsp (optional)
  9. Garam Masala - 1 tsp (optional)
  10. Oil - 1 tsp

Instructions:

  1. Pressure cook vegetables along with potatoes until they become soft.
  2. Mash the vegetables lightly and mix with corn flour, cilantro, oil, salt and chilli powder as required.
  3. Make a cutlet shape with the above mix and place these in an aluminium foil in a baking pan.
  4. Set the oven to BROIL setting and bake the cutlets for 10 -15mins or until they turn brown in color. Flip them over and bake for another 5mins.
  5. Serve hot with ketchup or tomato sauce.
