250 gms mushroom
1 medium potato boiled
1 large onion chopped fine
1 tsp ginger garlic paste
2-3 green chilies chopped fine
3 sprigs curry leaves chopped
1 tbsp coriander leaves chopped
½ tsp garam masala
½ tsp pepper powder
½ tsp turmeric powder
5-6 tbsp bread crumbs
Oil for shallow frying or deep frying
Boil 2-3 cups of water. Add mushrooms and boil for 2-3 minutes.
Drain and cool a bit. Squeeze out water (otherwise frying takes time) and chop finely or pulse 2-3 times in a grinder.
Saute onions in 2 tbsp oil till translucent.
Add ginger/garlic paste, curry leaves, coriander leaves and green chilies and saute for few minutes.
Stir in turmeric powder, garam masala and pepper powder.
Add mushrooms and mix well.
Stir till all water evaporates and the mixture becomes dry. (It will still be soft)
Take off fire and let it cool.
Add mashed potatoes and check salt.
Add a tbsp of breadcrumbs if the mixture is too soft to handle.
Make cutlets of any shape. Now you can either coat bread crumbs and shallow fry or dip in beaten egg/ or paste made with flour and water and rolled in breadcrumbs and deep fry.
Either way the result is tasty.
Serve with ketchup or a as a burger along with pickled cucumber.
To boil potato in microwave, chop it into big chunks, add 2 tbsp of water and microwave for 5-6 minutes in a covered glass bowl. Drain excess water.
Try to keep a vegetarian dish purely vegetarian, so try to avoid egg if possible.
