The Indian Railways Veg Cutlet Sandwich is part-and-parcel of the travel memories of those who travel by Indian Railways. It is a go-to or comfort food for many frequent travellers, and warms their souls when travelling across the country!

The deep-fried Cutlet offers a chunky bite of roughly-smashed veggies coated in semolina. The cutlet may be shaped in different ways – round, oblong or heart-shaped, but make sure you shape it firmly so that it does not separate while frying.

You need to take care of multiple factors when deep-frying these cutlets – the temperature of the oil must be maintained properly, and you should fry only one or two cutlets at a time. Avoid turning the cutlets frequently while frying. Sounds like a lot of care is needed to make it – but this droolworthy snack is surely worth it!

These yummy cutlets are usually served with bread, butter and tomato ketchup. You can make them into a proper sandwich as shown here, by placing the cutlets between buttered, ketchup-lined bread slices, to make a scrumptious snack!

You can also try other snacks like the Pav Bhaji Sandwich or Soya and Green Peas Cutlet

I am a frequent IRCTC traveler and I was always curious to know what they put in the cutlet. Thanks for the recipe. I will try it at home.
