    The veal pattie is ground veal flattened (similar to hamburger style). The veal cutlet is an actual slice of veal breaded.

    A patty is usually when some stuffing such as minced  and spiced vegetables/ minced and spiced chicken or fish is stuffed inside a soft dough of plain flour--then baked.
    A cutlet also contains minced and spiced vegetables/ chicken/ fish. This is given a particular shape of your choice--which could be round or oblong or heart shape. Then it is coated with breadcrumbs and  fried in a pan, either shallow or deep.

    Patty refers to something that has been ground down (or minced) then reformed. Such as a burger.

    A cutlet is fresh unedited meat. For example a steak.

    I think a patty is grounded meat (burger)  and a cutlet is single cut from meat (steak, chicken breast).

    A patty is a small cake of food, usually mostly meat, formed by patting together bits of it. That implies it has been chopped or ground first, then reassembled. It's called a patty because you pat it out.

    A cutlet is a small cake of food, usually meat, formed by cutting it off a larger hunk. It's called a cutlet because you cut it out.
