These spinach potato pea vegan cutlets are finger-licking good and the best part is, they don’t reek of any defenseless animal’s suffering. Kebabs are one of the most popular starters served in the Indian subcontinent. They are delicious, spicy and not too heavy if you opt for shallow frying (instead of deep).

  1. In a mixing bowl, add boiled peas, potatoes, grated ginger, green chilies, chopped (blanched) spinach leaves, and cilantro leaves. Mash them all very well. Set aside.
  2. In a deep pan, roast gram flour until it is aromatic. Take care that it doesn’t get over-roasted or too dark in color.
  3. Add gram flour, salt, pepper powder, asafoetida, and dry mango powder to the spinach-potato mash set aside in the previous step.
  4. Knead the mix thoroughly to give it a dough like consistency. Shape the dough into several small, flat, round patties.
  5. In a pan, shallow fry the patties until they turn golden on both sides. Do not forget to flip for even cooking of patties.

    Cannot get the mango powder here – how could it be replaced?

    @Suzan mango powder is basically to add a bit of savory tinge to the cutlets. If you don’t have easy access to mango powder, you can try squeezing half a lemon (one tablespoon of lemon juice).
