Heart shaped Vegetable Cutlets - Valentine's Special

Valentine's special heart shaped vegetable cutlets

Thinking about some heart shaped veggie delights for Valentine's day..? Then you have come to the right place. These pinkish hearts will surely impress your loved ones. You can also serve it as a starter or appetizer. It is a no onion-garlic recipe. To get this pink color I have used beetroot with some other vegetables and potatoes and to maintain that I have not added any extra breadcrumbs layer to it. You can shallow fry it to make it healthier. Ingredients for this recipe are mentioned below.


1 cup chopped potato steamed or boiled
1/2 cup chopped carrot steamed or boiled
1/4 cup chopped beans steamed or boiled
1/4 cup chopped beetroot steamed or boiled
1/4 cup green peas steamed or boiled
1 teaspoon ginger paste
1 teaspoon chopped green chili
2 tablespoon chopped coriander leaves
1 tablespoon chopped curry leaves
1 tablespoon lime juice
1/2 teaspoon garam masala powder
1/2 teaspoon red chili powder
1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
1/2 teaspoon fennel(saunf) powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin powder
2 tablespoons chopped fried cashew nuts
1 tablespoon cornflour
4 bread slices
Salt as required
Oil for frying


  • Heat 4 tablespoons oil in a pan. Add chopped green chili, ginger paste, and chopped curry leaves. Saute for some seconds.
  • Add all steamed vegetables, turmeric powder, salt, red chili powder, cumin powder, fennel powder, and garam masala powder.
  • Saute well and let it cook for 3 to 4 minutes. 
  • Turn off the flame. Transfer the prepared mixture to a bowl and let it cool down completely. 
  • Soak the bread slices in water. Then squeeze tightly all the soaked pieces to drain excess water and add in the prepared mixture.
  • Add lime juice, cornflour, chopped coriander leaves and chopped cashew nuts.
  • Mix well. Slightly mash them. Divide them into small portions. Give a round shape with your hand. Use a heart-shaped cookie cutter and press it slightly or you can shape them with your hand too. Repeat the process to shape all the cutlets.  
  • Heat oil in a pan. Now deep fry the cutlets. Cook each side till it changes its color. 
  • Serve with some tomato ketchup.
