* .Leaving the potatoes overnight dries up the potatoes which will help in cutlets holding the shape well.
. If the potatoe mixture is very soft and not holding the shape well then add a spoon of breadcrumbs and knead.
. You can add lot of other masalas like coriander powder, red chilly powder, amchur, jerra powder depending on how masaledaar (spicy) you want.
. You can coat the cutlets with breadcrumbs and refrigerate or freeze it to be fried later.
. Fry one cutlet at a time at medium heat to get even colour.
