Vegetable cutlet is a popular and simple snack item. It is very easy to make and can be had as an appetizer or light afternoon snack or evening snack with tea. It is great for small parties and get togethers. I have used shallow frying method to prepare this recipe. The goodness of veggies and lesser oil makes this dish tasty and healthy.
