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.


  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


  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.
