POTATO CUTLETS RECIPE

   I have tried potato cutlets a few times but i never followed any proper recipe while making them. But this time i made potato cutlets for  my son’s birthday, who turned 5. It came out really well. Since i made in large quantity i deep fried the cutlets, if you are making for your family you can do the shallow frying method also.
Since my son is born on Valentines Day i made heart shaped cutlets. You can make them in round or oblong shape and it is consumes less time also.

  • I use the cookie cutter to make them into heart shape.
  • Dip the cutlet in corn flour batter on both the sides.

  • Spread the bread crumbs on the plate.
  • Roll the maida dipped cutlets in bread crumbs and keep it aside.
  • Repeat the process for the remaining cutlets.

  • Cover it with a cling wrap and keep it in the fridge for an hour.
  • Heat oil in a kadai and when it is hot, gently put in the cutlet in the oil.
  • Fry till golden brown.
  • Take it out and drain in kitchen towel.

Notes:
  1. If you are using cookie cutter just grease the cutter with oil before pressing.
  2. Grease the plate in which you are keeping potato mixture.
  3. You can keep it in the fridge for a longer time also.
  4. I made them on the previous day and fried on the next day only.
  5. If you dont have breadcrumbs, just roast the bread in tawa without oil.
  6. Roast it nicely and powder them in the mixie.

  35. why maida is needed to be added in potato mixture.
    when i dipped in corn flour batter, i was feeling my cutlet was soggy

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Maida is added to tighten the mixture and to remove the excess moisture. If it is tight it won't be soggy after dipping in corn flour mixture. Roll them over the bread crumbs

  41. hi jayashri, thanks for the recipe. just wanted to know, is there any advantage of keeping it in the fridge,?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Keeping it in the fridge makes it more firm and will never turn soggy while frying. Thanks for the message
