Mixed Veg Cutlets ~ Snack Food ~ Kids Corner {Video Recipes}

Today I am bringing very simple and yummy snack food that is Mixed Veg Cutlets. These cutlets are loaded with veggies, multi grains and healthy nuts that your kids are going love these as evening snack. Usually cutlets are deep fried, but in my recipe i cut down the deep frying process in order make it healthy. If you have boiled potatoes handy these cutlets can be made under 15 minutes, yes this recipe is that quick and simple. Here is the recipe, Njoy!

Mixed Veg (Frozen) - 1/2 cup
Multigrain bread slices - 2
Green Chili - 1
Chopped Cilantro - 1 Tbsp
Rice Flour  - 1/3 cup
Chopped Cashew Nuts - 1 Tbsp ( Optional)
Lime Juice - 1 Tbsp
Salt - 1 tsp
Black pepper - 1/2 tsp
Chat Masala - 1 tsp
Turmeric Powder - 1/2 tsp
Suji Rava (Semolina) - 1/3 cup
Oil - 2 to 3 Tbsp

*yields - 12 cutlets

Preparatory Steps:

  1. Boil Potatoes in Pressure Cooker and peel them, mash them and keep them handy. 
  2. If you are in rush time follow this simple tip to get the Boiled Potatoes in Microwave: Peel one Large (Russet) Potato, chop into medium size cubes and keep in microwave safe bowl along with 1/2 cup water. Microwave for 6 min, take it out let it cool, drain the water, use fork and mash it all together. 
  3. Microwave mixed frozen veg for 1 min in order thaw them.  Grind the mixed veg coarsely in food processor or in small mixie jar.
  4. Take Suji Rava in a wide plate and keep it aside.


  1. Take a medium bowl add mashed boiled potatoes to it. Add roughly ground mixed veg to the bowl.
  2. Take a small plate and add 1 Tbsp of water to it, add the Bread Slice to the plate on both sides until it becomes moist. Follow this for second bread slice and add these Bread slices to the bowl.
  3. Mix Potatoes, Mixed Veg and Bread slices together. Now add Chopped Green Chili and Cilantro to the bowl.Add Rice Flour, Lime Juice, Chopped cashew nuts ( if you are using). 
  4. Add all the spices salt, black pepper, turmeric powder and chat masala to the bowl.
  5. Mix everything together until it forms like thick dough. Let it sit for 5 min for all the spices to sink into potatoes and veggies.
  6. Now take spoonful amount of  mixture in your hands and make it into oval shape ( or any other fun shapes like heart etc), roll this in Suji Rava on both sides just until it is coated on all sides.
  7. Make cutlets until you are finished with all the mixture.
  8. Now take a wide non-stick pan and 1 Tbsp of Oil to it. Add half of cutlets to the pan and cook them on 2 to 3 min each side until the Suji rava is roasted and turns into crispy. While cooking cutlets on other side add 1 tsp of oil on top of cutlets. Follow the same process for  next batch of cutlets. 
  9. Transfer these to serving plate and serve them warm with Ketchup or Hot Sauce. 


  • If your kid has nut allergies you can totally skip cashew nuts. 
  • Suji Rava gives nice crunch to these cutlets and making them crispy outside.
  • Use your cookie cutter to give some more fun shapes for these cutlets. That makes it lot of fun for your kids.
  • If you want to make spicy version add 1/2 tsp of Red Chili Powder to the mixture. Since I am making these for kids, I was low on spice scale in this recipe.
