Learnt this from mama and ever since I remember I have been helping her shape them, I think thats te best thing I like to do even now.

2 cups boiled and smashed potatoes
1 cup steamed vegetables (carrots, beans, peas - cut the vegetables really small and steam them)
1/4 chopped finely cabbage
upto 1 cup bread crumbs/ fresh bread powder
1 tsp garlic
1 tsp mango powder/Amchur or to taste
1 tsp red chili powder or to taste
1 tsp cumin powder or to taste
garam masala to taste (Optional)
salt to taste
oil for deep frying


  1. Mix the potatoes, vegetables and cabbage.
  2. Add the garlic, amchur, red chili powder, cumin powder, garam masala if using and salt. Mix well.
  3. Now slowly mix in bread crumbs 1/4 cup at a time, till you feel the mixture is dry enough and holds the shape.
  4. Make a small ball and shape it anyways you like, using a heart shape cookie cutter, or the cover of a round bottle.
  5. Roll it in some more bread crumbs. Keep aside.
  6. Repeat the same for the rest of the mixture.
  7. Deep fry the cutlets till golden brown.
  8. Serve with tomato ketchup or chutney.
