Potato Cutlet – Healthy Way

I saw several recipes of Aloo Cutlets on the web. Most had onions and I was looking to make these on a Thursday and so eating onion was a big no no for me. So, I read all the recipes and decided to try my own healthy version, which didn’t involve frying. For a first timer, this was really tasty and was liked very much by my family. They had many suggestions, which I have mentioned at the end as well.

Ingredients:

  • 3 large potatoes
  • 4 slices bread
  • 1/4 cup green peas
  • 5 sprigs coriander leaves
  • Red Chilli powder and salt to taste

Method:

  1. Boil the potatoes. Remove the skin and grate them.
  2. If you have bread crumbs you can use them, instead I used fresh whole wheat bread. Place the bread in a tray and keep them in an oven for 8-10 minutes at 350 degree. Make sure the bread doesn’t get burnt. Once they are cool, grind them or crush them finely with your hands. I used whole wheat bread, but you can use white bread also.
  3. Next, microwave the peas for 2-3 minutes and crush them.
  4. Now, mix potatoes, bread crumbs, peas, coriander leaves, red chilli powder, and salt.
  5. Shape them to any size you wish or as shown below.

  6. Heat a non stick pan. Add a few drops of oil. Place the cutlets on the pan as shown:

  7. Let them cook, until brown on both sides on a medium heat.
  8. Serve with tomato ketchup or green chutney.

P.S: This recipe takes around 30 minutes to prepare. With the quantity and size I have, it made around 15 cutlets.
Suggestion 1: Make bigger patties and use within burgers.
Suggestion 2: Might taste better with Onions.
Suggestion 3: Can be used within Fillafel also.
