Potato Cutlet recipe| Aloo cutlet, with video and step wise pictures, a popular snack of India made using potatoes, a super hit in parties. Potato cutlet is something, that I have attempted making a few times without any specific recipe or protocol. Since my family members loved it each time they insisted on me making this for my son’s 5th birthday. No wonder it turned out to be a super hit. I made it in large quantities and hence deep fried the cutlets. For health conscious or elderly people, this recipe can be tried using shallow fry method. Since my son’s birthday falls on a Valentine’s day, I tried making heart shaped cutlets. It was slightly time consuming but his smile was very much worth the effort. You can try making them into round or oblong shaped ones. If you are craving for a slightly different taste then you can also try making the sweet potato cutlet or for a more crispy outcome you can try making the Semiya cutlets.

  • Fry the cutlets in batches. Cook on both sides till golden brown.

Potato Cutlet recipe

Notes:

  1. If you are using cookie cutter just grease the cutter with oil before pressing.
  2. You can keep it in the fridge for a longer time also.
  3. I made them on the previous day and fried on the next day only.
  4. If you don’t have breadcrumbs, just roast the bread in tawa without oil. Roast it nicely and powder them in the mixie.
  5. Potato cutlet is a perfect crowd pleaser and party snack recipe.

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

Reply
admin December 20, 2012 - 3:31 pm

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

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

Reply
jeyashri suresh December 4, 2013 - 2:13 pm

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