vegetable cutlets or vegetable patties is one of the most liked breakfast/fried snack any time of the year. In winters with fresh carrots and peas, this simple and easy to make snack gives a tough competition to ever popular samosas.
You can add whatever seasonal vegetables you have on hand. As I might have told you earlier we try to keep fried food reserved for Sunday’s breakfast and avoid it rest of week. on Sunday’s in winters, this is one of the most preferred breakfast in our home.
Even when you are entertaining this is a very good choice. vegetable cutlets deep fry fast in comparison to pakode and samosa. So if you are expecting guests keep them ready and fry only when required. These are best served hot.
