Quick Mixed vegetable cutlets

I delivered a beautiful baby boy 2 months ago and all this while was getting used to looking after this little addition to our family. My first kid and so much happening in our life in these 2 months. For 1st month my mum in law helped me look after my son so she had taken control of the kitchen. But now after one month I am in charge of the kitchen once again and now started to cook properly. So after the delivery of the baby this is my first post.

1 1/2 cup mashed potato powder
1 cup frozen mixed vegetable
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp red chilli powder
a pinch of asafoetida / hing
1 tsp cumin seeds
handful of coriander leaves chopped

Put the mixed vegetables in a microwavable dish and microwave it for 5 mins full power. I have a 800watt microwave. Now mash the vegetables , add mashed potato powder, red chilli powder, salt , hing , cumin seeds and coriander leaves.Mix properly with hand. Add 1/4 cup water and make a dough. Add powder if dough is watery or add more water if dough is dry. Now make patties and roast them on a skillet sprayed with oil. Cook till they turn brown and now spray oil on the other side of the patties and cook them till they turn brown on the other side also. Serve with green chutney or ketchup . Can be eaten just like that . Best served when hot.
