If you are in search of a snack that fits all these criteria, then I guess you are on the right page. Yes guys be ready to hack your meal with this easy to make vegetable cutlet. Be it a cozy evening with splattering raindrops outside the window or a sudden arrival of guests or friends - never hesitate to amuse them with this crispy crunchy vegetable cutlet. Well the actual credits really goes to Steffi. Inspired by the original recipe from Madras Samayal, I guess this is one of the basic methods and I swear it is an easy one too. She has just nailed it with such simplicity. With a handful of vegetables added, this snack definitely tops your checklist regarding diet and nutrition. So now lets get started.

#FoodforSoul - LiFe GiViNg WoRdS - The Scripture says, "A gentle tongue brings healing" (Proverbs 15:4). When you tell someone, "I love you, and I'm proud of you," you're not just being kind; those are healing words. It might be just a simple word of encouragement or a compliment, such as "I'm praying for you" or "You look great today." It's no big deal to you, but to them it helps heal a wound. It lifts their spirits, causing them to believe in themselves. Just letting people know that you care does more than you imagine. You have the power to put someone on their feet, to keep them from falling into depression, to cause them to pursue their dream.

Somebody needs your healing words today. Why don't you start with your own family? How long has it been since you've told your spouse, "I love you. I'm so glad that you're mine." Don't let strangers compliment your spouse more than you do. Bless your children every day with your words. Tell them how proud you are of them. Tell them what they can become. Remind them that they are made in the image of Almighty God. Call out their seeds of greatness. They have enough people telling them what they can't become. They face all kinds of negative chatter on social media, bullying, people saying hurtful things. When you tell them you love them and are proud of them, that's not just healing the wounds, that's protecting them. Proverbs 18:4 says, "A person's words can be life-giving water." .  Source - JoelVictoria blog

Step 4: Now add all the finely cut vegetables - carrot, beans and peas one by one and continue sauting in medium flame.

Step 5: Add required water and salt and saute the mixture well for some two to three minutes. Don't overcook them. Let it be half boiled to retain the crunchiness.

Step 6: Once boiled add the mashed potato. If you feel the mixture is too watery, do add some maida or bread crumbs to thicken it in order to get the right consistency.

Step 7: Now add chopped coriander leaves and pepper powder and mix it so that it gets distributed uniformly. Then switch off the flame and allow it to cool.

Step 8: Now take small quantities from this mixture, roll it in small rounds and press it into patties. Prepare such patties and keep it aside.

Step 9: In a bowl, mix maida with water to make a batter like paste.

Step 10: Dip the cutlet patties in the maida paste and then coat it with bread crumbs. See to that the bread crumbs are evenly coated on either sides of the patty. You can fry this in two ways either deep fry or shallow fry it.

Step 11: While deep frying, drop the patties in the heated oil and fry in low flame. While shallow frying apply oil from time to time on the pattys' surface. On either ways, do flip the patties so that they get fried uniformly on either sides and never forget to maintain a low flame.

Once fried , your cutlets are ready to be served.

So this is one way on making your children eat healthy food. Also you could freeze the patties and fry it when needed.
