. Boil the potatoes and drain them immediately to prevent them from absorbing lot of water. Peel and mash it and keep aside.
. Finely chop or grate the other vegetables. You can also chop in a food processor.
. Boil the other vegetables too. You can do it in the microwave or stove top. Squeeze out as much water as possible from the vegetables. This is very essential in making good cutlets.
. Heat oil in a pan and saute the onions and ginger garlic paste for few minutes. This step is optional and removes the raw flavour in the onions and garlic.
