Meat Cutlets

Chicken/mutton/beef ½ kg
Onion 2 medium size chopped finely
Potatoes 3 medium size
Ginger 1 inch piece chopped finely
Green chilly chopped 2 or 3 according to taste
Garam masala ½ teaspoon
Coriander leaves chopped ¼ cup
Curry leaves few

How to prepare
Cook meat first.
Cook meat with ginger garlic paste 2 teaspoons , garam masala 1 teaspoon, pepper powder 2 teaspoon or chilly powder 2 teaspoons, turmeric powder 1 teaspoon, and salt. Reduce water by cooking uncovered for not to lose the taste.
After cooked, grind the meat only for few seconds to make it crushed. Or you can use minced meat for this.

Next boil potatoes, remove skin and mash.

Then heat oil.
Sauté onion.
When onions are transparent, sauté ginger and green chilly.
Stir for few seconds.
Then add coriander leaves, chopped curry leaves, garam masala and salt to this.
Add mashed potatoes and meat to this.
Mix well with hands.
Check salt.
Make balls and press between palms.
Make sure the edges are not broken.

For frying
Bread crumbs 1 cup
Egg 1

Break egg.
Dip the sides of cutlet in this.
Then roll it in the bread crumbs.
Keep in a tray.
Once you finished preparing cutlets deep fry them.

You can keep them in the freezer without frying if you want to fry them later.

You can use maida instead of bread crumbs and only egg white instead of using whole egg. So the oil will not foam while frying.

    Hi Mansi,
    Welcome to Simple and Delicious!
    Thanks for visiting, glad to know you liked my blog..

    Praju, thanks, where r u?

  12. Yummy! Looks perfect! Nicely shaped and looks firm too. My beef or vegee cutlets never holds together so well... So you don't dip the cutlets entirely in the egg/eggwhites, you just dip only the sides? I'll have to try your recipe with chicken. Thanks for sharing Seena.


  13. Hey Anon,
    No need to dip the cutlet entirely in the egg/egg white.Just dip the sides and when we try to dip all the edges, it will normally reach the sides.

  14. Hey Seena,
    I loved your cutlets. I too make cutlets very often. They come out really tasty and crispy but dont come out very soft and smooth. Can you suggest some tips for making cutlets soft and smooth

  15. Anon, I love to see you with a name,pls.. :)
    Did you follow this cutlet recipe? These are not hard, I think. Don't know any tips to make them soft and smooth, but just make them as usual.. :)
