Step 1: Dry roast the oats on low heat for a few minutes until they are lightly golden (4-5 minutes). Let it cool completely (images 1 and 2).
Step 2: Combine oats, potato, paneer, carrot, ginger, chili, garam masala, amchur, chili powder, and salt in a large bowl. Bring the mixture together to form a soft dough (images 3 and 4).
Step 3: Pinch a small portion of the mixture and make a ball. Gently flatten it with your palms, ensuring no cracks at the ends. Repeat with the rest of the mixture (images 5 and 6).
Step 4: Heat oil and carefully place the cutlets in a single layer and shallow fry on medium heat for 3-4 minutes. Carefully flip the cutlet and fry on the other side (images 7 and 8).
The measurements in this recipe give 12-15 cutlets. You may half or double the recipe as per your preference.
Dry roast the oats and let them cool before using them. This adds a great texture and crunch to the cutlets.
If you cannot access amchur (dried mango powder), you can replace it with lemon/lime juice.
This is a great make-ahead snack. You can either shape and place them in the refrigerator or fry them and then store them.
