Vegetable cutlet in a serving plate
Vegetable cutlet recipe - This vegetable cutlet is a simple shallow fried snack prepared with easily available vegetables like potato, green peas and carrots. It is a healthy version of snack to serve during the evening with a cup of tea or coffee. Usually  cutlets are deep fried. However, to avoid excessive oil, these cutlets are rolled in bread crumbs and then shallow fried using very little amount of oil. Deep fried cutlets are more tastier because of its oil absorption. But, too much oil is not good for health. So, I prefer shallow fried cutlets. To get more tastier cutlet you can deep fry them by using the same ingredients and method.
