Potato-Broccoli Cutlets


When it comes to cooking with potatoes,I make two dishes mostly. One being Potato/aloo palya and another one is cutlets. Along with potatoes I also use broccoli for cutlets, infact this is the only dish I use broccoli in , everyone in my house like eating broccoli this way.

This makes for a very satifying snack or same can be used with buns for making burgers for a meal. For the recipe I used red skined potatoes, used whole potoes along with the skin for making cutlets.

So here are the ingredinets I used

  1. Red skin Potatoes- 4 nos
  2. Broccoli – about 5 florets
  3. Roasted red bell peppers- 3 tbsp spoon ( Iused store brought)
  4. Onion- 1 meduim
  5. Spices: Garam masala and Red chilli powder- 1 tsp each
  6. Bread crumbs – 1 cup (take two slice of bread and run it in mixie untill it from like crumbs).
  • For garnish- Tomato ketchup, mint chutney, few cilantro leaves and lime juice 1 tbsp.

  1. Wash potatoes and cook them in boiling water till tender. Chop onion, bell pepper and broccoli to bit size pieces.
  2. Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a pan, add veggies cover and cook till soft. Now add cooked and cooled potatoes either chop them or crumble them.( I have left the skin on so I have choped them).
  3. Add spices and salt mix well , then add bread crumbs about 1/2 cup of so the veggie mixture all comes together to form a stiff ball.
  4. Once cool down to handle makes ball shape and flatten with palm of your hand. Roll  the patties in remaining bread crumbs.
  5. Heat tava/griddle on medium heat. Add little oil and put pattie on that and leave for 3-4 minutes till the side is golden brown , filp and let the other side roast as well.
  6. Squeese lime juice and serve with chutney and sauces. Garnish with cilantro leaves

*Along with bread crumbs, rice flour can be added to make the veg mixture stiff and crispy. Patties can be deep fried instead of roasting on tava.

    The first picture looks lovely Madhu especially with touch of ketchup. I like your idea of using breadcrumbs. I use soaked bread and it does not become crispy.

    Soaked bread, new way of making cutlets. Deep frying may make it crispy. Thanks RC.
