I guess,i was doing my 6th standard,when i tasted cutlet for the first time.But,I didnt like the taste and the color.It was horrible as it was over cooked n cold.So i never loved to eat it anywhere.But during my college days,my friends took me to "the sangeetha restaurant" trichy(one of my fav hotels in trichy) for a birthday party.Party went well,there cutlet was served as the starter,again after a long gap i had to eat it,but to my surprise,it tasted very delicious,texture n taste was tempting too.Then whenever i visit any chat corner,i started ordering for it.My friend used to prepare this in a very simple way,and here i'm sharing the yummy recipe with u all......
Makes 8 medium sized cutlets
1.Bread(whole wheat/maida) - 4
2.Boiled n mashed potato - 3/4 cups
3.Boiled green peas - 1/4 cup
4.Half cooked chopped carrot - 1/4 cup
5.Chopped Onion - 1/2 cup
6.Red chilli powder - 1 tbsp
7.Salt to taste
8.Oil for frying.
9.Coriander leaves,sliced carrot,sliced onion for presentation.
1.Dip bread slices one by one in water,squeeze out the water from the bread and keep this damp bread aside.
Note: Don cut down the edges of the bread,bcoz it has high nutritional value.
2.Heat kadai,pour 3 spoons of oil,add onion once heated.
Once the onion is cooked,add red chilli powder,salt,carrot,peas n mashed potato.
3.Mix it well,Switch off the flame.Mix the damp bread to the veg mixture,mix it well and let it cool down.
4.Now take a lil portion of it,roll it on a greased plate to any shape(food moulds help u here,to get variety of shapes).Dough should be thick enough,so that they look like a cutlet,at the same time,it should stay together when they r deep fried.
5.In the mean time heat oil,on a deep frying pan.Fry cutlets one by one,so that they are not broken at any point.
6.Fry till golden brown.Serve it hot with sliced veggies,hot chilli sauce and tangy tomato sauce.
Have this spicy cutlet with hot masala tea on a weekend evening.Ohh!! that will be so enjoying :-)
