Put potatoes in a pressure cooker, add sufficient amount of water and cook.(2-3 whistles). Once the pressure goes off, immediately take off the potatoes from the cooker and keep them aside. Once they come to room temperature remove the outer cover and grate them as shown in the picture.

Grate the carrot and finely chop the beans as shown in the picture below. Chop coriander leaves into small pieces.

Put grated carrot, finely chopped beans, frozen/soaked green peas in a pressure cooker container and cook.(4-5 whistles; Note: Don't add any water) Once the pressure goes off, put them in a clean cotton cloth and squeeze them properly.

Put 3-4 tsp oil in a thick bottomed vessel/pan and heat. Add ginger garlic paste and fry them for about 1-2 mins in low flame. Add chopped coriander leaves and fry them for about 1-2 mins in low flame. Add turmeric powder, cumin seed powder, coriander seed powder, garam masala, chilly powder, mango powder and fry them for about 1 min in low flame. Add squeezed vegetable mix, salt and mix them well. Fry them for about 3-4 mins in medium/low flame.

Put this fried mixture and grated potato in a vessel and mix them well(Add salt if required)

Put around 3 tsp of all purpose flour, pinch of salt in a bowl. Mix them well by adding sufficient amount of water.(The consistency should be like that of milk)

Take little amount of prepared dough and pat it to medium thick round shapes as shown in the picture below.

I love cutlets too. Or rather anything that is fried. What I wanted to know was, all purpose flour & maida... are they similar? And can I roll it over the rusk powder instead of the bread crumbs?

All Purpose flour and Maida are same...
Yeah you can use rusk powder instead of bread crumbs..

Madam, If you have made cutlets in heart shape it would have been nicer. In our mind cutlet has the identity in that shape..:)
