Thanks for the background info. After looking at the vast catalog of dishes you have contributed on this website, I see the variety of Indian possibilities you offer. It's obvious how much effort went into all of these. You and your fabulous recipes rock!

In Indian cuisine, a cutlet specifically refers to cooked meat (mutton, pork, fish and chicken) stuffing that is fried with a batter/covering. The meat itself is cooked with spices - onion, cardamom, cloves, cinnamon, coriander (cilantro), green chillies, lemon and salt. The potato is boiled, mashed and mixed with finely cut green chillies and coriander and salt. This is then dipped in an egg mix and then in breadcrumbs, and fried in ghee or vegetable oil.

The vegetarian version has no meat in it. Instead the filling is a combination of the mashed potatoes, onion, green chillies, spices and salt, cooked for a bit together. This food is part of the cuisine of Kerala Nasrani Christians specifically.

This international Indian favorite appetizer is prepared by boiling and mashing potatoes, chopping up onions, finely dicing green peppers (green chilies), and cilantro (optional) combining in Indian spices such as pepper and salt. After you combine all the components, crack one egg and use breadcrumbs for the coating.

This combo of ingredients looks so unusual (as are most of your recipes I have seen). I can't wait to try it. What is the ethnic history of this recipe?
