  • Now cutlet mix is ready; shape them to convenient size as you wish.


  • I cooked some cutlets by deep-frying and some in tawa as shallow fry; both types came out well.
  • Mix maida in water to form a thin consistency batter; now dip the shaped cutlet in maida batter and dust it with breadcrumbs; deep fry or shallow fry.
  • Deep fried cutlets:
