I love cutlets, tikkis hand veg. kababs but i hardly prepare these. The last time i had prepared cutlets must be some years ago. I know it is a very easy cooking process to prepare these and but dont know why i never prepare these when i want to prepare some good snack to ,maybe this can also be coz these dishes are not which i have grown up eating but only found out when i was old enough to eat out and discovered these dishes. But still i have to kick myself for not experimenting more in my kitchen. I love cooking and whenever i see a recipe which interest me i usually bookmark it and also write down the recipe in my diary but i never prepare these….most of the time i am too lazy too cook and go for the shortcut methods which i am familiar in preparing…. i really think i should rename my blog as “A lazy but interested cook”. Have made up my mind to keep cooking new recipes and try to blog regularly maybe twice a week should do it. I am really not the one who can blog everyday and i love some blogs who update it everyday. My salute to them in keeping up.
Coming to the recipe the 1st time i had cutlets was when i was in my 12th and had it in a very famous chat restuarant near my college.Have prepared it harldy maybe 5 times in so many years… but i am surely going to change this and prepare them regularly like maybe atleast once in two months maybe. These cutlets are made of Potato and some addition of paneer as well and by god there are a treat to eat. Love the crunchy texture outside which comes from breadcrumbs and soft texture inside. Do try these atleast once and you will surely fall in love with them.
Potato 3 medium Boiled peeled and grated
Paneer 1/4 cup grated
Kissan cream cheese 1 tbsp
Coriander leaves as much as u like
Mint leaves 5 sprigs
Salt to taste
Chaat masala 1 tsp
R.chilli powder 1 tsp
Lemon Juice 1 tsp
For Outer covering
3 tbsp maida
Flavored bead crumbs
In a bowl mix all the ingredients from potato till lemon juice.
Mix them nicely and prepare cylindrical rolls.
You can prepare these beforehand and let them sit in the fridge till further use.
Mix maida with water and prepare a smooth paste. the consistency can be that of the dosa batter.
Spread the bread crumbs in a wide plate.
Heat oil in a kadai.
Take the rolls and dip them 1st in batter and then roll them in bread crumbs.
Again dip them in batter and again roll them in bread crumbs.
I double dip these to get the extra crunchy texture.
Plop them in oil 2 at a time and deep fry till dark brown in color.
Serve Hot Hot with chutney or sauce or any dip you prefer.
These are sure yum in taste and you wont be able to stop yourself from eating more than 2. I dare on that.
For Flavored Bread Crumbs: Grind bread in a mixie along with some pepper and dried mint leaves.
These cutlets are not spicy but you can finely chopped g.chilli or a spoonful of garam masala.
You can prepare these in round tikkis shape and add it you burger.
I did sandwich the rolls between chutney spread bread slices and had my own bread burger.
Adding veggies is always good and there are a number of them you can add like beans carrot peas corn…they can go endless
Have Fun and Do Enjoy!!!!!!
