Veg Cutlets Recipe


Veg Cutlet || Vegetable Kabab || How to make Veg Cutlets with step-by-step photos

Veg cutlets are one of the most delicious, popular, and flavored Pakistani tea-time snacks. it is made using a variety of vegetables, basic spices, and herbs. and then they are shallow fried until they golden brown color and dipped with GREEN CHUTNEY or DAHI CHUTNEY.

These veg cutlets crumbs are coated and pan-fried yet they turn out great with a crisp texture

In a variation, you can use any veggies of your choice as well as bake veg cutlets instead of frying for a healthier version. During these winter evenings, these veg cutlets really well go with a hot cup of  MASALA TEA or KASHMIRI TEA


These are popularly served as a snack for your tea-time munchies or can also be served as an appetizer for your get-togethers, house parties, or even game/movie nights.

For the best result follow my detailed step-by-step photo instructions and tips below the recipe card

Recipe notes:

  1. Always steam or boil the vegetables as dente and not mushy. This prevents the cutlets from turning too soft from the inside
  2. Veg cutlets are filled with lots of veggies. this time I used potatoes, peas carrots, capsicums, spring onion, green chilies, and herbs.while you can add cauliflower, cabbage, mushrooms, beans
  3. In variation can be added cottage/chatted cheese, and chopped boiled eggs as well. if using cheese double-coat the cutlets so that cheese doesn’t come out of the cutlets and mess up
  4. Keep Spice a level less or more in veg cutlets as per taste  


  1. I used HOMEMADE BREADCRUMBS to coat the cutlets. you can use store-bought crumbs or fresh bread crumbs Alternately crushed cornflakes also can be used instead of bread crumbs 
  2. Don’t require coating these cutlets in egg or flour batter. breadcrumbs are enough to coat well. but if you want more crispness in veg cutlets then can use egg or flour batter before coating them with crumbs   
Use the oil/ghee of your choice but I highly recommend frying cutlets in olive oil to make your cutlets healthy and flavorful taste also you bake them

To prepare this recipe firstly, chop the spring onion, capsicum, coriander leaves, and green chilies



Rinse and peel potatoes, carrots, and peas. and steam them together until just done in a steamer or pot. They must be soft-cooked and firm but not mushy or soggy



Mash boiled potatoes, peas, and carrots in the mixing bowl. Next, add all chopped veggies spring onion, green chilies, coriander leaves, and capsicums to the veggie mixture



Combine them together very well. 



Then add soaked bread sliced, ginger powder, garlic powder, chicken powder, chaat masala



Salt, crushed black pepper, and red chili flakes. Mix until everything is incorporated

Place each patty on the bread crumbs. make sure the patty is coated with bread crumbs on both sides



Repeat this for all the patties and place them on a plate. leave them aside for about 5-10 minutes. this helps the bread crumbs to stick well  to the patties



Heat oil in the pan and shallow fry or bake them. I used 3 tbsp oil for each batch of 3 patties. you can reduce the quantity to 2 tbsp

Lauki Kabab Recipe


Lauki kabab | Bottle Gourd kabab || How to Make Lauki Kabab With step-by-step photos

Lauki Kabab is a simple, spicy, and easy veggie recipe, this lauki kabab is prepared with a few ingredients, This lauki kabab is crispy and delicious with an amazing taste_i couldn’t resist me to share this recipe with all

Actually, this recipe belongs to my grandmother. My father has grown up eating this kabab and the same with me. My mother learned this recipe from my grandmom. I have grown up watching my mom and my grandmom cooking these kebabs. This is a very simple recipe because it requires very ordinary spices that you can get in every kitchen.

I love these kababs with hot parathas and I can have these anytime in the day.  My brother like these kababs_this is the best who prefers to eat vegetarian dishes

There are two methods used to make these lauki kababs but this is another one which as per my calculation is the best one
Usually, people cook lauki with chana dal (Bengal gram) by adding the same spices of Shami kabab and then grinding and making kababs but I made kabab by grating raw bottle gourd and then adding some spices along with gram flour_gram flour works as the binding agent to make kababs_you can also add rice flour instead of gram flour or can use both flours in making lauki kababs

So let's begin with step-by-step photos

Chicken Seekh Kabab Recipe


Chicken Seekh Kababs|| Seekh Kabab Recipe || How to Make Steamed Kababs with Step-by-step Photos

Seekh Kababs are a delicious Pakistani appetizer made with ground meat and a handful of spices this seekh kabab is usually served with a side of green chutney Looking for a more delicious appetizer? you must try these steamed chicken roastChicken malai boti roll paratha

When we hear about barbecue items then immediately comes into mind is those are cooked on charcoal, but we have a lot of options to make barbecue items, especially seekh kabab cooks on charcoal which is not possible for everyone, space issue is the main factor so I decided to make chicken seekh kababs in a steamed style very easy wholesome and low-calorie kebab 

Literally juicy and delicious seekh kababs once you try them you will forget other seekh kababs, this is my own version which I am sharing with you all….
So let’s begin 

What is chicken seekh kabab?
  1. First thing, what does seekh kabab mean? Well, seekh quite literally means skewers and kabob usually means a meat patty or actually even cubes of grilled meat.
  2. However Pakistani Seekh Kabab is almost always made with minced meat and they get their long shape by being skewered.
  3. In Pakistan, you’ll find all types of kabab: beef seekh kabab, mutton seekh kabab, and chicken seekh kabab are the most popular variations of kabab.
  4. While Seekh Kabab is an appetizer that’s delicious dipped in green chutney, it goes very well as a side with mains such as this puri paratha and paratha, you can also bake it in chicken seekh kabab
How do you bake chicken seekh kabab?
  1. It's easy to bake chicken seekh kabab in the oven.
  2. Start by preheating your oven to 200 C and lightly grease a baking tray.
  3. Place the seekh kabab onto the baking tray, and bake for about 10 minutes or so, turning the seekh kabab once so that they evenly.
  4. Once the seekh kabab is golden brown and cooked through, remove it from the oven and serve immediately.
  1. I didn’t use any binding agent in the kabab as I cared about not adding any moisturized ingredients until squeezed and dried
  2. Otherwise, the kabab will be shredded, and apart from skewers
  3. if the meat mixture is too moist and doesn't stick to the skewer, add a few teaspoons of gram flour (besan). The flour will dry out the moisture. 
  4. I used chicken meat but you can use beef, mutton, or lamb
  5. It has to increase marination time more than chicken
  6. The rest of the ingredients will remain the same
  7. After steaming you can store kebabs for up to a month
