This snack needs no introduction, even to a little child! Vegetable Cutlets are by far one of the most popular snacks, not only in India but across the world.
In other places, it is known by the name of Veg Patty and is used to make burgers and other snacks. The Vegetable Cutlet is a yummy snack that combines a horde of veggies with a range of spice powders, with mouth-watering results!
The spice powders, especially the garam masala and the amchur powder give the cutlet a multi-faceted flavour that combines spice with a bit of tang. The veggies give the cutlet a really nice mouth-feel that is soft but not mushy.
If you have done it right, you should be able to actually feel the veggies on your palate when you take each bite. The veg mixture is then rolled in flour and bread crumbs, and deep-fried till irresistibly crisp. Serve it immediately after draining with ketchup and green chutney.
