Method:

  1. Measure 1/2 Cup of vermicilli and set it aside. Boil 2-3 cups of water and add the vermicilli  to the boiling water and cook it till it becomes soft and tender. Generally it takes only 2-3 minutes for the vermicilli to cook in boiling water

  2. Once the vermicilli is cooked, strain the excess water and take the cooked vermicilli in a mixing bowl. Allow it to cool is that you can handle it with your hands. Once the vermicilli is cooled off, add boiled, peeled and mashed potatoes to the mixing bowl

  3. Then add, crushed peanuts to the mixing bowl followed by bread crumbs. We can add each ingredient in any order we want. 

  4. Add finely chopped green chillies, salt and lemon juice to the mixing bowl and mix well to make it like a dough. The dough should not be sticky. if it is sticky then add little more bread crumbs. Grease your palm with little oil and take lemon sized balls out of the dough and make cutlets in any shape like circle or oval. Make cutlets out of the dough and set it aside

  5. Heat oil in a pan for deep frying. When the oil is hot enough, gently drop 4-5 cutlets in the pan and deep fry them on the both the side till they are golden brown color

  6. When the cutlets are crispy and turns golden brown color remove from oil and place it in tissue paper to drain excess oil. Repeat the step for rest of the cutlets

  7. The crunchy and yummy Vermicilli Cutlets are now ready to serve! Serve with your favourite dips and enjoy the snack!

    1. Hi Roopa, Bread Crumbs are powdered dry bread. We can get bread crumbs in any departmental stores. We can even make it at home. Use any wheat or brown bread. Dry roast the breads and grind it to a powder and you can use it.
