I learned how to make these delicious vegetable patties, also called vegetable cutlets about 9 years ago from a friend who called me mom. She was originally from Tamil Nadu where the vegetarian version is very popular using soy chunks.

When she first made these vegetable patties in my home, the idea of dipping the patties into flaxseed gel first then into bread crumbs was conceived. I haven't made them since and I decided to do a gluten-free version using a blend of all-purpose gluten-free flour and coconut flour instead of breadcrumbs with great success.

How To Make Vegetable Patties

First, boil the potatoes for about 20 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the vegetables. Saute onion, garlic, ginger. Add cumin, turmeric, cilantro, carrot, green peas, green beans, corn and salt and cook stirring until vegetables are tender. Then  drain cooked potatoes using a colander and rinse with cold water, allow them to cool slightly and mash using a potato masher or fork,

Mix mash potatoes with cooked vegetables and form into patties, dip into gluten-free breading and bake. These are traditionally fried so you are welcome to fry them if you choose.

I also like to serve this with a coconut curry recipe for a formal dinner or with ketchup or cilantro sauce for a more casual fare.

What Is Turmeric?

Turmeric is a bright yellow powder from the rhizome plant that is similar to ginger, it is used to flavor foods, for other health benefits and its also used as a natural dye.

I have a special love for Indian food and do love to use turmeric for flavor, color and most of all for its anti-inflammatory properties. Tumeric is what makes curry powder yellow.

Curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, has been known to be effective in treating conditions such as cancer to Alzheimer's disease. It is a natural antiseptic and antibacterial agent, beneficial in treating cuts and burns.

Turmeric is widely used as a pain relief for conditions such as arthritis and fibromyalgia. It is as effective as some conventional pain medications without the potentially harmful side effects. Turmeric has been known to shrink tumors and prevent metastases.

It is also used to treat psoriasis, acne, and other inflammatory skin conditions. It is also effective in weight loss and reversing heart disease.

    These sound amazing, I’d like to make them in bulk for BLW . Do you think they would be good to freeze?
