Ingredients to make Vegetable Chop (Bengali Styled Vegetable Croquettes)

  • 4 large Beetroot, peeled and finely grated
  • 1 large Carrot, peeled and finely grated
  • 2 medium size Potatoes, boiled, peeled and mashed
  • 2 Tbsp Peanuts, dry roasted, peeled and halved
  • 2 tsp Ginger, grated
  • 2-3 green chillies, finely chopped
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 1/4th cup Green peas, shelled and blanched (optional)
  • 1 tbsp garam masala powder
  • 3 tbsp corn flour
  • 1 Tbsp APF/Maida
  • Bread Crumbs, enough for coating the chops/croquettes properly
  • 2 Tbsp+1 tsp Oil for frying the Vegetables and peanuts
  • Oil for deep frying the chops/croquettes

How to make Vegetable Chop (Bengali Styled Vegetable Croquettes)

  1. In a deep-bottomed wok/kadahi or frying pan, put a tsp of oil and fry the peanuts on medium heat till golden brown. Remove and keep aside on a plate.
  2. In the same wok/kadahi or pan put 2 Tbsp of oil, add the grated beetroot and carrots. Saute well on medium heat and fry until the water dries up and oil separates.
  3. Now add the grated ginger, mashed potatoes, fried peanuts, blanched green peas, garam masala powder, chopped green chillies, salt and sugar. Fold in and mix well and let fry for few minutes.
  4. Once cooked, let the mixture cool to room temperature. Then make 14-15 large oblong shaped chops/croquettes. Place them on an oil greased plate or flat surface after shaping.
  5. In a bowl add the cornflour and flour, mix some water to make a smooth paste (not very runny or thick). Separately put the bread crumbs on a flat surface or plate and set aside.
  6. Now roll each oblong shaped veggie mixture one by one into the flour paste and then immediately roll onto the bread crumbs until evenly and well coated on all sides. Place them back on the plate or flat surface.
  7. Heat enough oil in a deep-bottomed wok or deep frying pan. Fry the chops, 3-4 at a time in batches until golden brown or lightly browned on all sides on low heat.
  8. Remove and set aside on a kitchen towel topped plate to let soak up the excess oil. Serve them hot with onion rings and mustard sauce(kasundi).

My Tip:

This is a mildly sweet savoury item. You can adjust the sweetness or salt as per your taste. You can skip adding peanuts if you have an allergy.
