Cooking Process + Highlights
These cutlets do not require thawing. As suggested on the pack, they must be consumed after proper cooking by deep-frying them.
We fried them in vegetable oil until they turned crisp and crunchy. During the process, we observed that the sides of the cutlets cooked faster. Hence, it is best to fry them on a medium flame.
If the flame is higher, the sides will darken quickly, leaving the center inside uncooked and cold.
Visually, these are big-sized round-shaped cutlets with a medium thickness. These are not thick like your regular aloo tikkis but similar to a veg burger patty.
On the inside, the cutlets are yellow due to the presence of turmeric. All the vegetables have a vibrant look. The peas are plumped up and have a healthy green color.
Except for sweet corn, we could spot all the other vegetables (carrots, beans, peas, onions).
We could whiff a dominant aroma of vegetables with some mixed masala which was quite enticing.
On the taste front, it delivers well-balanced flavors. These are seasoned with the right amount of spiciness and salt. Tastes delicious when paired with some ketchup on the side.
All the vegetables are fresh, naturally sweet, and super flavorful like they should be.
These have no potatoes and the freshness of the veggies is what holds it together. For those looking for a non-potato vegetarian snack, these could be a good choice.
The mix of masalas used can be mildly improved to make this more flavorful.
The outer layer had a desirable crispness that made us go back for more and more. The vegetables, specifically – carrots and beans, bring a nice crunchiness as we took a bite.
- Vibrant and crunchy vegetable
- Fresh and flavorful vegetables.
- Excellent, crisp texture
- Balanced salt and spices
Be it unplanned house parties, or midnight cravings, these vegetable cutlets will make a quick snack for indulgence. It is an excellent snack that is not aloo dominant and a good pick for vegetarians.
