Baked Veg Cutlets

Want to make cutlets for a party and also not stand for hours in the kitchen making a whole bunch of them?! Simple solution...Bake them all:-)! You can be out of the kitchen getting ready for the party while the cutlets are baking in the oven....


- 2 to 3 cups boiled and mashed vegetables
- 1 tsp chilly powder
- 1/2 tsp chat masala
- 1/8 tsp turmeric powder
- Salt to taste
- 2 cup bread crumbs for rolling
- 1 cup thick paste of all purpose flour
- Finely chopped fresh coriander leaves

Prep time: 45 mins                           Cook time: 20 mins


- Wash and cut the vegetables. Steam/ boil them well. Preferably use veggies like potatoes, green peas, beetroot  and carrots

- On cooling, mash the veggies and blend in the salt, chat masala, chilly powder, turmeric powder and the coriander leaves.

- Keep the all purpose flour mixed with little water into a thick paste.

- Make lemon sized balls, roll them in the flour batter and then flatten them on the bread crumbs.

- Grease the baking tray or sheet with cooking spray or with little oil
- Place the flattened patties rolled in the crumbs on the baking plate

- Pre-heat the oven to 400 deg F.
- Once all the patties are rolled and placed, spray the cooking oil spray on top of the patties. If you do not have the spray, you could brush little oil on top of each of the cutlets.
- Bake them in the oven for 20 mins and turn over the patties after 10 mins.
- Remove from oven, once the cutlets are golden brown on top.

Foot note:
- These are easier to make and does not involve a lot of oil as is done for normal cutlets.
- The taste may not be the same as the authentic cutlets made with a ton of oil, but ofcourse this is definitely a healthy way:-))!!
