Patty need not always be meaty these can also be delicious veggie patty. Paneer and Soya Patties make a perfect appetizer for vegetarians and an absolutely healthy snack. This is one of the best vegetarian soya cutlet recipe without potatoes that tastes utterly delicious.

Soya chunks being absolutely nutritious and high in protein, is a very popular and versatile ingredient used in Indian Cooking . One can enjoy them guilt free as it requires very little oil for cooking. These are super crispy from outside and melt in the mouth and juicy inside. I have used very basic ingredients here, you can feel free to add any veggies of your choice to this.

Can you make Soya Burger patty as well?

Paneer and Soya patties can be made as vegan burger patty as well, just skip the paneer and bread crumbs, add roasted besan instead and shape it into a soya burger patty, fry it and it’s ready. You may also want to check my recipes for Suran | Yam Tikki and Soya & Spinach Kebabs for veg options.

Paneer and Soya Patties Recipe | Soya Cutlets Recipe


  • 1 cup nutrela soya chunks
  • 1 cup crumbled paneer
  • 1 finely chopped onion
  • 1 tsp chopped or grated garlic
  • 1 tsp chopped or grated garlic
  • 1/2 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp haldi/turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp chat masala or amchur masala (dry mango powder)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp break crumbs
  • 1/2 cup chopped coriander

  • Soak the soya chunks in hot water for around half hour. If you are using normal big size soya chunks and soaking in normal water, you may want to soak it longer.
  • Drain off the water, add some water to cover the soya and boil it either on gas or in the microwave. I prefer microwave as it gets done in 2 minutes.
  • Squeeze out all the water from soya and put the chunks to a food processor and mince it fine.
  • Remove it in a bowl, add crumbled paneer and all above ingredients except oil and mix well.
  • Feel free to add little more bread crumbs for the mixture to bind better if feels loose.
  • Shape these in a patty or cutlets.
  • Drizzle some oil in a non stick pan, and fry these patties till both sides are nice and crisp.
  • Once done, garish and serve with any dip of your choice.
  • Paneer & Soya Patties are ready, enjoy for breakfast over over a cup of evening tea or coffee
