Vegetable Cutlet

Vegetable Cutlet is a snack Item and can have with tea or as evening snack. Loads of  vegetables can be added to this and it is one of the yummy dish for kids and all age group I can say. Use of less oil will be better while preparing.
I have used bread. carrots, fresh corn pods, sweet potatoes and very little french beans. I prepared it with little oil.

There is No Onions or Garlic in this Vegetable Cutlet " Recipe 
Lets see recipe Now :

Ingredients :

Carrot : 2
Corn Pods (Fresh) : 1 Cup (Half of One corn)
Sweet Potatoes : 2
Beans : 4 to 6 sticks.
Green chillies :1
Ginger : half inch
Coriander leaves : 4 to 6 sticks.
Bread Slices : 4 to 6
Chiroti Rava : Thin Semolina : 2 to 3 Tablespoons
Salt : to taste
Garam Masala Powder : 1/2 Teaspoon
Jeera Powder : 1/2 Teaspoons
Oil : 5 to 6 Table spoons.

Method :

1. Boil sweet potato and remove the skin .
2. Wash and grate carrots, ginger, cut coriander leaves, green chilly.

3. Take a big bowl. Add bread pieces and cut it in to small pieces and powder it. Mix all the ingredients. (chilly powder, jeera powder, turmeric powder and garam masala powder). Carrots, smashed sweet potato, thin cut beans, coriander leaves, and corn all should be mixed together nicely.
6. Now take the dough and make small balls.
7. Take each ball, pat ( flatten ) it in the palm roll on the chiroti rava (thin variety semolina) and shallow fry one by one.
8. Fry them in low flame . Sprinkle oil on each side while frying .
9. Fry both sides of the cutlet till golden brown.

10.Repeat the same with rest of the dough.

Serve hot cutlet with ketch up or chutney.

Note :
You can add rava ( samolina ) or corn flour instead of besan. (options). You can add paalak leaves to give green colour to the cutlet. ( Boil palak leaves for 2 to 3 minutes and grind them in to paste). You can also fry cutlet instead of shallow fry. You can add garam masala powder to make it more spicy.If the dough looks more liquid add one or two slices of bread so that the dough thickens and it will be easy to prepare cutlets. Use of more oil to cook cutlet is optional. No corn flour or any other flour is used except bread powder. You can churn the bread in dry grinder and make into powder. Even the edges are used. (Optional). If you want to fry them add 1/2 cup of Avalakki/flatten rice and mix with all the ingredients. No need to wash or soak. Just add them. Or add 2 tablespoons of corn flour or rice flour and mix it.
Time : 40 minutes.
