Cutlet

Cutlets are very easy to prepare at home. Can have it in the evening as snack along with a hot cup of tea or a coffee. You can also add any vegetables you like to add extra nutrition and to make it more healthy ;). I love cutlets especially when they are hot so do try it this way.


NOTE : 
  • Can use finely chopped boiled vegetables like beetroot, carrot, beans etc
  • I am using potatoes,Onions and peas.
  • You can also use rice flour instead of rice.
  • Adding bread helps in crispiness. 
  • Green chilies or red chilly powder can be added as per your preference.
  • I am not using garlic and ginger so as to make it simple but you can also try along with it.
  • Use breads by removing it's crusts or sides.
  • Can use corn flour solution(1 tbsp corn flour dissolved with 1-2 tbsp water) to dip cutlets before rolling it over rava. This helps cutlet to become sticky and to get coated with rava easily. You can also skip this step as the cutlet dough itself is very sticky. I would recommed this step only if you feel that your dough is not sticky enough.
  • You can either shallow fry or deep fry cutlets. I have shallow fried them.
