Veg cutlet recipe | Railway canteen-style vegetable cutlet recipe. Cutlet recipe with full video and step by step pictures.

Train trips are filled with many food memories. Usually, for our train trips, we pack food from home. Either we take Idli molagapodi, Podi dosai, exclusively made for travel, puliyodarai, curd rice, lemon rice, and tomato rice. Chapati and pickle were rare. Also buying food from the station or inside the train are not entertained by parents.

Years later when we started traveling from Madurai to Chennai via Vagai express(daytime train), we first heard the word cutlet. Those days it was a very rare thing. Once we tried those delicious veg cutlets from the railway canteen, we got hooked up to the taste. So we kids will always prefer going to Chennai by Vagai express only. Though it is an 8-hour boring day train journey, we still love it, for the cutlets. The cutlets were served in the aluminum foiled box along with a sauce packet. That was a luxury those days.

I have posted few cutlet recipes in Jeyashri’s kitchen. I wanted to post this Railway canteen-style Veg cutlet recipe. Adapted the recipe slightly from Chef Ranveer’s post and tried this at home. It was too good and we really relived our childhood memories. It was fun sharing my childhood memories with kids.
