Crispy Cutlet


  • 2 medium potatoes 400 grams
  • ▢2 medium carrots 12 grams
  • ▢1/2 cup green peas
  • ▢3/4 cup green beans chopped
  • ▢1 teaspoon ginger chopped
  • ▢1 green chili chopped
  • ▢1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • ▢1/2 teaspoon garam masala
  • ▢1/2 teaspoon cumin powder
  • ▢1/2 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • ▢1.25 cups bread crumbs divided, I used panko bread crumbs
  • ▢1/4 cup cornstarch
  • ▢1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • ▢1/2 cup water
  • ▢3-4 tablespoons oil to cook the cutlets, I used avocado oil


  • First, peel and then chop the potatoes into 1/2 inch pieces. Cut carrots into rounds and also chop the beans into small pieces.Place all the veggies along with green peas on a steamer basket. Steam until they are cooked but not mushy. I used steaming basket and steamed in Instant for 2 minutes (with 1 cup water in main pot) and let the pressure release naturally. You can steam them using a stove-top steamer as well.
  • Transfer all steamed veggies into a bowl and then mash using a potato masher.Then add chopped ginger, green chili, black pepper, cumin powder, garam masala and salt.
  • Add 1/2 cup breadcrumbs (I used panko bread crumbs) and mix until everything is well combined.
  • Take a small round portion from the mix and then give it a round shape. I used a round cookie cutter to make them even and got 9 culets, of around 60 grams each. You can shape these in any way you like- oval, heart shape etc.
  • To a bowl add cornstarch, flour and water and mix to form a smooth paste.
  • Take one prepared cutlet and dip it in prepared cornstarch-flour paste.
  • Take the remaining 3/4 cup breadcrumbs in a plate and then roll the cutlet into it after dipping in the cornstarch-flour paste. Make sure both sides are well coated with the breadcrumbs.
  • Heat 3 to 4 tablespoons of oil in a pan on medium heat. Once the oil is hot, add the prepared cutlet onto the pan.Fry for 4 to 5 minutes, then flip the cutlets and fry the other side as well until both sides turn golden-brown in color. Serve with cilantro chutney or ketchup.
