well, to begin with, the railway industry is huge in india and there are many snacks and meal it has to offer for all its visitors. the meal or set of recipes may differ from each state and places as each meal is prepared from different natively influenced catering providers. however, one particular snack recipe is fairly common across all the caterers and that is the cutlet recipe. the use of spices and the coating might be slightly different to each other, but the taste and shape are consistent. moreover, the set of vegetables used for this recipe is also very consistent with beetroot playing a major role in it. basically, beetroot gives a sweet and savoury taste to the cutlet and hence the popularity of the snack. hence i would strongly recommend trying this simple snack once for your next party or for an evening snack.

furthermore, some more additional tips, suggestions and variants to the railway cutlet recipe. firstly, i would strongly recommend using a combination of vegetables for this recipe to get the real and authentic taste. do not attempt to make this recipe with just one vegetable as it would rather end up making a veg cutlet and not the train cutlet. secondly, i have deep-fried these crispy snacks to get the best result. having said that you may also opt for the pan-fried or even shallow fry cutlet for a better health option. lastly, the shape does not play any major role in the taste and flavour of the snack. yet it is a practice with this cutlet to shape it oval. but you may shape it as per your preference or as per your shaper.
