8 Easy to make Vegetarian Cutlet Recipes
Cutlets are easy to make. They are made in many ways and with different ingredients such as meat, vegetables, lentils, legumes, etc. I love making cutlets with lentils and legumes and pairing them with salad and various dips made with yoghurt and veggies. This way, I am able to include a reasonable amount of protein in my diet. Combining them with yoghurt and vegetables adds the mush needed fat, minerals and vitamins and makes a complete meal. If you are a vegetarian looking for ways to have a balanced diet and increase your protein intake, check out these recipes:
- Chickpeas and Paneer Cutlets paired with salad and cabbage & carrot dip

- Rongi Aur Aalu ki Tikki
Vegetarians looking for high-protein foods and adding variety to their everyday meals must include black-eyed peas in their diet. High in protein, these legumes can be made in many ways.

You can have them as is with your favourite dip or make a chaat by combining them with tamarind chutney, mint chutney and flavoured yoghurt. Check out the recipe here.
- Potato & Quark Tikki with Grüne Soße and Salad
This fusion recipe combines potatoes with Russian Quark. Quark, which is a known source of protein, is crumbled and made into a filling for the cutlets. The outer covering is made of potatoes. I paired these with Grüne Soße, which is a delicious dip made with many herbs, yoghurt and cream. A must-try recipe if you live in Germany or have access to these ingredients.
