Add in the carrots, capsicum, paneer, onion, garlic, ginger into the mashed potatoes.
Mash all the ingredients well with your hands or a potato masher, a food processor can also be used. Mash till a subtle coarseness remains in the mixture.
Add in the remaining ingredients except the oil and mix well. Check for salt and spice levels as per your taste.
Shape this mixture into small lemon size balls and flatten them a little between your palms.
Dip these flat cutlets in the beaten egg and then followed by the bread crumbs.
Preheat a tawa or a skillet on medium heat; place the cutlets a few at a time on the skillet. Drizzle adequate oil on them and roast them on medium heat until they are crisp and browned on both sides.
Continue the same process with the remaining cutlets.
