vegetable cutlet

The very thought of a Vegetable cutlet reminds me of my college days when I used to spend most of my time at Latha's place. Latha's mom is an awesome cook. I happened to visit her house once on a special event. I directly headed into the kitchen sniffing about the wonderful aroma that was emanating from the kitchen. I saw about 3o cutlets each of equal size, and shape arranged beautifully on a huge plate. For a few morments, I could not take my eyes off of it. I learnt the recipe from her and over a period of time, I learnt to make tasty cutlets with consistent shape and size.
