Soya Veg Cutlet

Yes! I am huge fan of soya. I try to implement soya recipes atleast once in a week of our daily diet. Its said to be very nutritious and also high in protein. I found that this cutlet is one way to get my kiddo to eat more. After all if kids eat good food, moms are even more happier. What more you want :)...

Soya Chunks - 2 cup heap
Potato - 2 large (boiled)
Veggies - mix ( beans, carrot, peas, corn)
Onion - 2 medium chopped finely
Green chilly - 2-3 nos chopped finely
Ginger - 2 tbsp chopped finely
Garlic - 2 tbsp chopped finely
Chilli Powder - 1tsp (heaped) (adjust according to your spice level)
Turmeric Powder - 1/4 tsp
Garam Masala - 1 tsp (heaped)
Coriander Leaves - 4 tbsp finely chopped
Lemon Juice - 1 lemon
Black Pepper - 2 tsp

Breadcrumbs - 1/2 cup or as required
Rava - A big pinch for that extra crispiness (optional)
Egg - 1
Water - 2 tbsp
Oil - for shallow frying

Preparation :

Boil the Soya chunks in water and cover with for about 10 mins. Once cooled take the soya chunks in batches and press in between hand to remove all the water. Mince the chunks in a chopper or mixie.

Cook the carrot, corn and beans with salt in little water till evaoprates. Pressure cook peas till cooked.

Boil potato in a pressure cooker for 1 whistle or boil in a pan with water till cooked. Remove the skin and smash with back of the spoon or smasher till no lumps are formed.

In a pan, add about 2 tbsp of oil. Add in onions, ginger, garlic and green chilly. Saute till they turn light brown in color. Then add in the chilly powder and turmeric and saute for a min. Then add in the soya mince and cooked veggies and cook for about 5-10 mins. Take from flame. Now add the coriander leaves, salt, pepper, lemon juice and garam masala. Now add this mix to the potato. Mix well.

Beat the egg and 2 tbsp of water to it. Place breadcrumbs and rava on to a plate.

Now make small flat balls and dip in beaten egg and then into the breadcrumbs+rava mixture. The cutlets should be well coated with breadcrumbs. Then shallow or deep fry them in oil. Serve with sauce or as side dish for rotis :)

Note :
I was out of beans so didnt add them.
If you are not health conscious deep fry the cutlets. It will be more tastier.
