Chef Tips:

  1. If you are diet conscious and want to try these cutlets, but scared from deep fry then you can make them on non-stick griddle (tawa) as well.
  2. Drizzle little bit of oil and place these cutlets, get a good brown color and turn them, again drizzle very little oil, cook them on low heat, your cutlets will be ready in 8-10 minutes.
  3. You can also add bread crumbs to get a good fry.
  4. You can try to make this cutlet with mashed soya chunks also.
