Soya cutlets... crispy and spicy

Soya, a good source of nutrition addition to our appetite sure needs a lot of attention that it deserves. A little mix of spices to soya makes a perfect blend for cutlets that can serve as a pleasing appetizer or a healthy snack. I make it on the pan instead of deep frying for a even healthier result. My little one loves this too so a sure make in our house... "cukleks" as my kiddo has named it ;)

Serves... 2 ppl 
Serve option... Hot with ketchup or any other sauce

This is what u'll need....

Soya granules 1 cup uncooked
Green chillies 2-3
Red chilli 1 tspn
Garam masala 1 tspn
Onion 1 small
Tomato puree 1 tspn(optional)
Maida 2 tbspn
Corn starch 1 tbspn
Bread crumbs(optional)
Salt to taste

Here is the stir....
  • Cook soya granules, a little more time than you would normally cook them for other recipes. Drain them and keep aside
  • Heat oil in a pan and saute oil for a few minutes. Add gg paste and fry till the raw smell is off
  • Squeeze off extra water from soya and transfer it to a bowl
  • Add finely chopped green chillies, tomato puree, red chilli powder, garam masala, salt, maida, corn starch and sauted onions
  • Mash everything together really well to form a dough
  • Take small portions of the dough and shape into little cutlets. Roll them in bread crumbs if you want to. Make all the cutlets and keep them ready
  • Heat a pan and place the cutlets on it. Put few drops of oil and cook till they get golden brown. Cook them of medium flame for best flavor and crispiness
  • Serve very hot with ketchup or your favorite sauce :)
  • You can deep fry them if you like it that way
  • Eat it hot as these tend to get a little chewy when it starts getting cold
