I feel a recipe is only a theme, which an intelligent cook can play each time with a variation. Madam Benoit

People always say the best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen , nor touched , nor heard but are felt in the heart . But for food it's all in it's looks, flavours and taste.

Cutlet



Cutlet is one of my favorite bakery items. After learning the recipe I started preparing it at home rather than buying from outside. Everyone likes it and I do love cooking it for them. Today I made vegetable cutlet for evening tea.
Here is the recipe

Mashed potatoes – 2
Chopped Green chilies - 2
Chopped ginger – 1/2 tsp
Sliced onions – 1
Finely chopped carrot – 1
[Shredded chicken – ½ kg - if you are planning to make chicken cutlet]
Garam masala – 1 tsp
Turmeric powder – ½ tsp
Salt to taste
Plain flour – 2 tablespoon OR egg white – 2
Bread crumbs – 1 cup

Heat some oil in pan. Add ginger, onions, carrots and green chilies one by one. Sauté for few minutes. Add salt, garam masala and turmeric powder. Stir well. Cook for few minutes.

[For chicken cutlet, cook the shredded chicken and add this also to the pan along with onions, ginger and green chilies.]

Add mashed potatoes and Mix well. Switch of the flame and let it cool.

Now make small balls of desired shape.
See below

Make a batter adding water to plain flour or beat the egg white.
Dip each of the balls in flour/egg white and roll in bread crumbs, deep fry in the oil.
You can have cutlets along tomato sauce.
