Vegetable cutlet, Veg Cutlet recipe with step by step photos - Today I made an easy to make and yummy mixed vegetable cutlet recipe for our tea time snack. I love veg cutlets in bakery and chat shops. I took this recipe from Mrs.Mallika Badrinath’s cookbook and modified slightly as per the ones I tasted. Cutlet can be made with many variations as per your wish. If you like to make Kerala style Vegetable Cutlet recipe, add some cooked beetroot, use coconut oil for sautéing the vegetables and eggs for dipping the cutlet. Basically cutlet looks and tastes the best only when it is deep fried. But being a calorie conscious girl, I always shallow fry them using little oil in a dosa pan and had 3-4 of them heartily. Ok, lets see how to make this yummy vegetable cutlet recipe for tea time snack.
