Veg Cutlet

My Cutlet experiments finally ends here. I have tried to make cutlet before, but ended up in mess. cutlets will break on oil while deep frying or the cutlet drinks more oil. after all such failed attempts, here is my Just Pass Venture for you all. All Thanks to Divya's recipe and Namratha's recipe.

11. Arrange the wrapped cutlets in a plate and cover them with cling flim or with foil sheet. store the plate in fridge for about 30 minutes at least. You can store even overnight and thaw it for 30 minutes before frying.

12. Heat 1/4 cup of oil in a pan and Deep fry the cutlets, till they turn into golden brown colour in medium flame.

13. Remove the Cutlets on Tissue paper, serve with tomato ketchup. a cup of Masala Chai will make a nice pair!

Notes:

1.If serving for kids, you can use green chilli paste instead of finely chopped green chilli's.

2. After storing the cutlets in fridge, bring the cutlets to room temperature by taking them out 10 minutes before frying.

3. Using Wheat bread or brown bread makes these cutlets an healthier ones and its tastes great too.
