Soya Cutlets

Soya chunks are quite easy to work and provide us a canvas to work out our desirable taste. They don't have a taste of their own and so gets the taste of what is added to it. It is highly nutritious and has meaty texture. I thought of rolling it to soya cutlets which is quite easy to make as it gets ready in a wink. As it is lent time this small wonder does a lot of help in the kitchen.



Ingredients
  • Soya chunks - 75 gms
  • Potato - 1 large
  • Onion - 2 medium chopped
  • Ginger - 1 small piece chopped
  • Garlic - 1 clove chopped (we usually get the big ones here)\
  • Green chilli - 2 chopped
  • Pepper powder - 1 tsp (or may be 2 if you like it more)
  • Garam masala - 1 tsp
  • Maida - 2 tsp
  • Bread crumbs for rolling
  • Oil for frying and sauteing
  • Salt to taste



Method
  • Boil 3 cups water. Add soya chunks to it and let it soak for 30 minutes. 
  • After 30 minutes, drain and gently press the chunks to remove all excess water from it. 
  • In a mixer grinder or food processor grind the chunks without adding water (like you do for beef in beef cutlets). Keep aside
  • Cook the potato in a pressure cooker. Keep aside
  • Heat 1 tsp oil. 
  • Add the chopped onion, ginger, garlic and green chilli. Saute until the onions are light brown. 
  • Now add the ground soya chunks along with garam masala, pepper powder and salt.
  • Saute for 5-7 minutes in low flame until all the flavours gets locked up in the soya.
  • Mash the potato and add it to the above. Check salt and add if required.
  • Saute for 1-2 minutes and switch off.
  • Make balls of it and shape into your desired cutlets
  • Make a very very thin batter of maida (Note). Dip these cutlets in it and roll in bread crumbs. You can keep these in air tight bags in refrigerator and deep fry as desired. 
  • Serve warm with tomato ketchup. Enjoy!
Note: I used maida during rolling part to avoid egg. You can use beaten egg whites also instead of maida batter.
