Vegetable Cutlets (Masala Burger Patties)

These vegetable cutlets are easy to prepare and yet very mouthwatering. These cutlets can be fried or baked. The best thing about these cutlets is that you can add/omit vegetables of your choice. Usually potatoes are used to make this recipe since potato helps to bind cutlets very well. I added other vegetables along with potato such as carrot, beetroots, sweet potato, and other commonly used veggies. This cutlets can be served with chutneys or use it as a burger. Make great Indian style burger with these cutlets and impress everyone, specially your loved one. Add cheese lettuce, tomatoes, chutney or ketchup.I use all my Indian chutneys instead of mayo or other dressings and taste heavenly delicious. The fun part is to make these vegetable cutlets with different shapes. I absolutely love to make heart or oval shape over just regular circle.

3. Add the finely chopped onions, cilantro, curry leaves and a little bit of fresh lime juice.
4. Mix all the ingredients together firmly using your hands. Do not over mix to prevent water release from the vegetables.
5. Take small portions of the mixture and make patties and set aside. Meanwhile preheat the griddle.
6. In a bowl take a small amount of melted butter and milk and mix to form a mixture for coating the patties before frying them. In another bowl take some breadcrumbs.
7. Coat each patty in the butter and milk mixture and then with the breadcrumbs and place them on the heated griddle. Drizzle a little oil on the patties and flip sides till golden brown on both sides.

TIPS
If desired, you can also add the Indian garam masala and chaat masala to the mix.
Instead of the butter and milk mixture, a mixture with flour and water can be made. The patties can be coated in the flour and water mixture and then coated with sooji (semolina) as an alternate option and deep fried.
