Introducing the Veg Cutlet Sandwich – a harmonious blend of flavours and textures that will tantalize your taste buds. Imagine biting into a sandwich that encompasses the essence of crispy potato cutlets, the vibrant zest of green peas, and the richness of melted cheese, all lovingly tucked between slices of bread.
This creation is a tribute to the art of fusion cuisine, where traditional Indian spiced cutlets meet the Western sandwich concept. The journey begins with a mixture of boiled potatoes, chaat masala powder, and a touch of oil, formed into golden patties. These patties become the canvas for a medley of flavours – a coarsely ground paste of green peas, ginger, green chillies, sautéed onions, and a sprinkle of grated cheese.
As the cutlets sizzle to golden perfection on a hot grill, the cheese melts into a luscious blanket, binding all the elements together. The result is a sandwich that’s not just a treat for the palate but a feast for the senses. Each bite offers a satisfying crunch, earthy and spicy notes, and a creamy, cheesy finish.
Pair this Veg Cutlet Sandwich with a side of mint chutney or a tangy tomato salsa for an extra layer of flavour.
