I think we can progress happily with such convenient assumptions…About this recipe, in mumbai, you will find several tea stalls have neighboring stalls serving batata wadas or “cutles”…yes it is called cutles and not cutlet for some reason. Dh argued that it is what it is called and that probably the brits adopted it to call as as dish of their own. I do not know the history, but I am convinced that the street vendors initially got it wrong and then stuck on for the popularity..
