Vegetable cutlet with step by step pictures. This delicious veg cutlets taste amazing with tomato ketchup.
I love these crispy morsels, i have already shared a version of veg cutlets in my blog already. But i have my aunt(you must be familiar with her through my pooran poli post) who makes the perfect crispy veg cutlets. I have been asking her for the recipes.
Couple days back she came to my mom's place, and luckily i was there. And i looked in the fridge and thank god i had all the veggies and ingredients. So i asked her can we make it now. She agreed and we made it, i clicked all the pictures and it tasted just fantastic. I don't want to delay the recipe, since it is ramzan season and this makes a great iftar recipe.
Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you.
