Mixed vegetables- 1 cup chopped and boiled (I used beans, carrot and peas)
Potato- 1 cup (boiled)
Cilantro- 1/2 cup
Red chilli powder- 1 tsp (adjust the spice level according to your taste)
Coriander seeds- 1/2 tsp
Ginger garlic paste- 1/2 tsp
Turmeric- a pinch
All purpose flour- 4 tbsp
Bread crumbs- 1/2 cup
Oil for frying
Peel and grate boiled potatoes. Heat a tablespoon of oil in a pan and add cumin seeds, once it splutter add turmeric, ginger garlic paste, sauté for few seconds and add grated potato, chilli powder, chopped cilantro and mix well. Squeeze as much as water as you can from the boiled vegetables and then add it to the potato mixture. Then squeeze some lemon for more taste. Sauté until the remaining water evaporates, for about 2-3 minutes. Add salt and adjust the spice level at this point. The patties is the one which gives a great taste for the cutlet when fried. Allow the mixture to cool.
Meanwhile.. in a frying pan, add enough oil to fry the patties and turn on the heat. Put all-purpose flour and breadcrumbs in two different dishes mix water to all-purpose flour and make a thick batter and keep it ready. Divide the mixture into equal small portions and flatten them into desired shape with 1/4 inch thickness.
Dip the patty first in all purpose flour batter and then coat it completely with bread crumbs and fry in the heated oil until golden brown. Enjoy with ketchup and mint chutney.
