Mushroom / Koon Cutlet


You might have tasted different veg/non-veg cutlets. This is a cutlet with only mushrooms. It is very tasty snack and everyone will like it. Some mushroom side dishes I have already shared, so I wanted to try something else this time. Finally it turned out to be a cutlet.


  • Mushroom – 250 gram
  • Onion – 1 ,  finely chopped
  • Garlic – 3 cloves,  crushed
  • Ginger – 1 inch piece,  crushed
  • Green chili –  2,  chopped
  • Garam masala – 1 teaspoon
  • Chili powder – 1/4 teaspoon
  • Curry leaves – 1 sprig, chopped
  • Potato  – 1 medium, boiled, peeled and mashed
  • Egg – 1


  1. Bring to boil water in a cooking vessel and add mushrooms . Cook it covered for 2 minutes. Switch off flame and drain the mushrooms. Pat dry it with a kitchen towel.
  2. Finely chop the mushrooms using a knife or put in a food processor.
  3. Heat oil in a pan, add chopped onions and fry it. Add crushed ginger, garlic, green chilies and fry for 3-4 minutes.
  4. Add chopped mushrooms and saute till the water evaporates. Add chilly powder, garam masala , salt, curry leaves and fry till it is well sauted. Switch off the flame and let it cool.
  5. Add the mashed potato with the mushroom mix and combine it well using your hands. Make small balls with it , keep it in your palm , and give a gentle press to shape it into a thick circle.
  6. Dip it in beaten egg(or cornflour + water mix), roll it in bread crumbs and deep fry in medium flame till it is golden.
