Bread Cutlets are scrumptious veg cutlets made with a mixture of softened bread, mashed potatoes and other veggies perked up with everyday taste-givers like garlic, ginger, green chillies and coriander.
The bread not only gives volume and keeps the ingredients together but also gives the shallow-fried cutlets a unique texture that is soft with a mild, crackling crispness when you bite into it.
You can enjoy the crunchy bread vegetable cutlet as an evening snack, or serve it as a starter at parties.

To make instant bread cutlets, we will first take the ginger, garlic and green chillies in a mortal pestle (khalbatta).
- Coarsely crush it. Keep aside. Yes, the readymade paste available in the market or frozen pastes are convenient to use but, the flavour and aroma of freshly ground paste are very different.
- Soak the bread slices in enough water in a deep bowl for 1 minute. To make this a bit healthier, make use of whole wheat or multigrain bread instead of white bread.
- Squeeze out all the excess water from the bread slice.
- Crumble them and place them in a deep bowl. Bread provides a soft texture to the cutlets.
- Add the prepared paste to it.
- Now add potatoes.
- Furthermore add onions and carrot. You can add any veggies of your choice like the boiled green peas, broccoli, capsicum and French beans to this mixture. They not only enhance the appearance but also, make them nutritious.
- Finally, add coriander and salt.
- Mix very well and your bread cutlet mixture is ready.
- Divide the mixture into 10 equal portions.
- Shape each portion into a ball.
- Flatten the ball slightly to make a cutlet. Ensure there are no gaps or else the cutlet will break on frying.
- Roll them in the bread crumbs till they are coated from all the sides. They provide a crispy texture on shallow-frying.
- Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a broad nonstick pan.
- Place 5 cutlets and cook on a medium flame till they turn golden brown in colour from both the sides.
- Repeat step 15 to cook 5 more cutlets.
