Servings: 10 cutlets


  • 1/4 cup quinoa uncooked
  • 1/2 cup soya chunks
  • 2 potatoes medium sized boiled
  • 1-2 green chilli finely chopped
  • 3/4- 1 cup mixed veggies like carrot,beans, green peas, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp Red Chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp garam masala powder optional
  • 1 tsp Ginger grated
  • 1 tsp garlic crushed
  • 1/2 cup Dhania/ Coriander Leaves
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • Salt to Taste
  • 1/4 cup Oil approx


  • Peel and grate the boiled potato. Set aside.
  • Wash and rinse in water the quinoa.
  • Cook the quinoa as per instructions on the packet. Mine needed 1/2 cup water. Fluff it with a fork and set it aside.
  • Meanwhile, cook the soya chunks in boiling water with a pinch of salt.
  • Once done rinse the soya chunks in the cold water for a couple of times. Squeeze all the water and pulse it in a blender to bit fine paste.
  • Boil the veggies like beans and peas with a little salt. I used grated carrots.
  • In a wide bowl mix grated potato, quinoa, soya kheema, boiled veggies, grated carrots and chopped coriander leaves.
  • Take a lemon size of the mixture and made it into the desired shape or flatten it to a disc and keep it aside.
  • Dredge the flattened disc in the breadcrumbs.
  • Heat a non-stick tava/skillet arrange the cutlets drizzle a little oil around each cutlet and shallow fry it both sides till golden.
  • Remove it and drain on a paper towel.
  • Cook the rest in the same way.
  • Serve it with ketchup.


  • I prefer to grate the potato after boiling, as it is not sticky when grated.
  • There should not be any moisture in the soya kheema and cooked quinoa.
