Vegetable Cutlets / Patties

Looking for a tasty and healthy snack or side dish? Vegetable cutlets are the answer! These versatile treats are perfect for vegetarians and can be cooked in a variety of ways to suit your taste and diet.

To make the perfect vegetable cutlets, start by choosing your vegetables. You can use any combination of veggies, but potato makes a great base for binding. For added protein, try adding soya granules or paneer/cottage cheese.

Other great veggies to use in your cutlets include cauliflower, broccoli, and capsicum. To cook the veggies, simply steam them in a pressure cooker. Once they're cooked, mix them with boiled potatoes and shape them into cutlets.

These cutlets make a great tea-time snack or can be served as a side dish during a meal. They taste fantastic with tomato ketchup or green mint chutney. For a more substantial meal, try serving them as patties with cheese and lettuce to make delicious veggie burgers.

So why not give vegetable cutlets a try? They're easy to cook, healthy, and can be adapted to suit your taste preferences. Let us know in the comments how yours turned out!

If you are a non-vegetarian, then try this Tuna Cutlets as a healthy snack for your kids.
