How to store cutlets?

You can safely store this veg cutlet for at least 2 to 3 days in a zip lock bag.

But, before using it make sure you cool them at room temperature, then deep into the maida water mixture and give a crumb coat before frying oil.

 

How to avoid breaking the cutlet while frying?

As veggies have a lot of moisture in it if the temperature of the oil is not perfect while deep frying then these veg cutlets automatically absorbs a lot of oil ultimately it will end up breaking.

So to avoid these I have two suggestions for you:

First one, While preparing to stuff for veg cutlets mash it properly, cool it down then add crushed cornflakes, breadcrumbs, or crushed poha whatever you like.

This will help to reduce moisture in the stuffing.

The second one, If you are not a pro cooker don’t do deep frying just do shallow frying as I’m using.

  • Choice Of Veggies: In an authentic vegetable cutlet recipe the main ingredients are beetroot, carrots, and green peas which I used here, if you want variation you can also include broccoli, sweet corn, yam scrambled paneer, etc  

 

  • Cooking Method: Here I cooked this veg cutlet recipe in shallow frying on medium to low flame. if you are not a pro cooker I suggest don’t do deep frying because you will end up breaking cutlets.

 

  • Secret Flavour: To enhances the flavour of vegetable cutlet use good quality coriander powder,garam masala powder, and amchur powder from any popular brand.

 

  • Binding Agents: To make a crispy veg cutlet recipe, I use crushed cornflakes here which not only reduces the moisture in veggies but also gives more crispy outside after frying. You can also use crushed poha or breadcrumbs.
