Cutlet or deep-fried snacks are a popular choice in Indian cuisine and are appreciated by all age groups. Typically it is prepared with a combination of vegetables or meat options to make a crisp and crunchy snack. It comes in different types and sizes which eventually derives its name and one such crisp and crunchy snack recipe is the veg fingers recipe.

I have always been a huge fan of deep-fried snack recipes and cutlet or finger foods are my personal favourites. Previously I was posting quite a few snacks recipe frequently on my blog, but I have reduced it. This is mainly towards focusing on healthy recipes. Therefore, I have started to post more on steamed or pan-fried snacks compared to deep frying. Yet there are certain snacks which require deep frying and veg fingers are one such classic snack. As I was explaining earlier, it is basically an extension to the cutlet recipe but shaped like a finger and coated with breadcrumbs. Generally, the cutlet recipes are coated with rava but breadcrumbs are a must for these fingers recipes. It is because it gives it a crisp golden colour and thus with its shape making it an attractive snack.

Furthermore, some more additional tips, suggestions and variants to the veg fingers recipe. Firstly, adding vegetables is completely open-ended and you can easily experiment or add as per your choice. I have added basic vegetables, but you can add exotic or even leafy vegetables as per your taste, choice and preference. Secondly, these fingers can be easily deep-frozen and can be used whenever you need them. I have shown in the video how to deep freeze them in a zip lock bag, but you can freeze them in an airtight container too. Lastly, if you prepare it immediately, I would heavily recommend double coating it with breadcrumbs so that the veggie mixture does not ooze out while deep frying.

notes:

  • additionally, add vegetables of your choice to make it look attractive.
  • finally, veggie fingers can be frozen for up to 2 months in a zip lock bag.
