Course: Snack
Cuisine: Indian
Servings: 8


  • 3 Potato - 3
  • ½ cup Carrot grated
  • ½ cup Beetroot grated
  • ¼ cup Peas fresh (or frozen)
  • 1 Onion
  • 1 tsp Ginger garlic paste
  • 1 Green chilli
  • ½ tsp Red chilli powder
  • ½ tsp Coriander seeds powder
  • 1 tsp Kitchen king masala
  • tsp Turmeric
  • ¼ cup Coriander leaves chopped
  • 6 Mint leaves optional
  • 1 tsp Lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp Maida all purpose flour
  • ½ cup Bread crumbs
  • Salt - as needed
  • Oil - as needed


Chopping work:

  • Cook potato, either by pressure cooking for 3 whistles (wash, cut into two and then cook with water to immerse it) or by microwaving for 4 mins. I microwaved to avoid water retention. Mash it well.
  • Finely chop onion, green chilli. Keep grated carrot, beetroot and chopped coriander leaves ready. Gather other ingredients needed.

Preparing the cutlet mixture:

  • Heat a pan with 2 tsp oil. Add chopped onion, green chilli and stir fry for a minute.
  • Add ginger garlic paste and cook further more for a minute.
  • In goes the vegetables grated carrot, beetroot and peas. Sprinkle 2 pinches of salt. Fry for a minute.
  • Cook covered for 3 minutes or until the vegetables are soft in medium flame.
  • Mash slightly using potato masher or with ladle itself.
  • Add cooked and well mashed potato, coriander leaves (mint leaves if adding) and red chilli, kitchen king masala, turmeric powders with required salt.
  • Add 2 tbsp bread crumbs and mix well. This step is optional. It helps absorbing moisture, binding the mixture and adds taste as well.
  • Cook for 2 minutes. Switch off flame, add lemon juice. Mix well and Set aside for cooling.

Making cutlets:

  • First let's prepare the maida paste for coating. In a shallow bowl, mix 2 tbsp of maida with a pinch of salt and enough water to make a thin paste out of it.
  • Keep bread crumbs ready in a plate.
  • Once the prepared vegetable mixture is cooled, divide into 8 equal sized balls.
  • Flatten into patties (use this technique for shaping if you want).
  • Dip prepared patties in maida paste. let the excess paste drain and just evenly coated patty should be placed over the bread crumbs.
  • Use other hand to cover the patty with bread crumbs, by sprinkling bread crumbs all over it. Flip and make sure to coat evenly.
  • Reshape if needed. Arrange in a plate.
  • You can also use a fork to coat the cutlets with maida paste. Just use the fork like a spoon. Do not poke it.
  • Repeat to finish. Keep covered until frying. Use cling wrap and keep refrigerated if you are planning to make it later.

Cooking cutlets:

  • Heat enough oil in a kadai and once hot (do not let the oil fume, otherwise the cutlets turn dark in colour quickly), drop the cutlets carefully to oil.
  • Cook in medium flame. Flip in between for even cooking.
  • Drain in paper towel once golden in colour. Repeat to finish.


  • I prefer to cook potato in microwave since it comes out dry.
  • To microwave potato, wash well, poke it in one or two places. Place it in oven and cook for 4 minutes. Turn the potatoes in between for even cooking. Give 2 mins standing time before peeling off the skin.
  • If pressure cooking potato, make sure not to over cook.
  • Red chilli powder can be adjusted according to your spice level.
  • Maida paste should not be too thick.
