Cumin - 1 tsp
Sliced cashew - 1 tbsp
Ginger garlic paste - 1 tbsp
Turmeric pwd - ¼ tsp

Lemon juice - ½ tsp
Bread crumbs - 2 tbsp
Salt to taste
To make Cutlets:
All purpose flour - 3 tbsp
Bread crumbs - 1 ½ cup
Oil to deep fry
Prepare inner stuffing with vegetables mixture
As I have shown stepwise in yesterdays post Vegetable Bonda.
Make small balls out of the mixture.
Pat it flat to small round shape . Also you can make it oval, heart shape or any shape desire.
Take all purpose flour in a small cup.
Add some water and make it smooth paste. ( the paste shouldn’t be too thin)
Keep the bread crumbs ready.
I used spicy flavored bread crumbs, which is available at Indian stores. You can also plain bread crumbs for coating, which will be equally tasty.
Now dip the shaped cutlets quickly in the all purpose flour paste and roll it with bread crumbs. ( also you can use beaten egg for dipping)
Repeat the same with all the cutlets and keep it ready for deep frying.
Heat oil in a frypan.
Drop the cutlets gently in hot oil.
Keep the flame on med-high flame and fry till it is golden in colour on both sides.
(Make sure the heat of the oil is adjusted well, else the cutlet may absorb oil.)
Drain on a paper towel.
Yummilicious Vegetable Cutlet is ready.
Enjoy hot with tomato ketch up or any of your favorite dips.
