Mixed Vegetable Cutlet without deep frying

                              Mixed vegetable cutlet is a perfect snack liked by everyone in my home. The beauty of the recipe is that it doesn't need any oil frying, but yet tastes delicious. It is a combination of potatoes with mixed veges. The coating made with bread crumbs, gives a crispy outside. Gives the similar taste and texture as of oil deep frying.
                                  An as a homemaker, the best part of the cutlet is that, the left outs of the potato masala, can be used for making mixed vegetable masala dosa. This happened in my house recently. One of my friend was to join us for evening tea, but unfortunately she did not come. So, finally the left out masala gave form to mixed vegetable masala dosa. The dosa was also yummy.
