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.
- 3 large potatoes
- 4 slices bread
- 1/4 cup green peas
- 5 sprigs coriander leaves
- Red Chilli powder and salt to taste
- Boil the potatoes. Remove the skin and grate them.
- 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.
- Next, microwave the peas for 2-3 minutes and crush them.
- Now, mix potatoes, bread crumbs, peas, coriander leaves, red chilli powder, and salt.
- Shape them to any size you wish or as shown below.
- Heat a non stick pan. Add a few drops of oil. Place the cutlets on the pan as shown:
- Let them cook, until brown on both sides on a medium heat.
- 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.
