I had a great and super bc weekend with the alumini meet on saturday and a visit to the kovai flower show yesterday and a bday party in the evening. It was a completely packed weekend and I enjoyed every bit of it.
I had such a memorable moment meeting friends and the teachers in our school campus after almost 15 yrs. I felt like even the corridors and classes spoke to me and had goosebumps when I entered the campus. I felt even more special when teachers and even the principal remembered me as a quiet girl hehe but yes I was calm and quiet during my school days and college days was totally different ;) I was totally moved when the principal asked me to give the url of sharmispassions :)
And about the kovai flower show : I felt this year it was more of commercial exhibits and the flowers arrangements were less , it was a colorful sight everywhere. Last year I had my dslr new so clicked all the pics in P mode and this time made up my mind to use only manual mode and got pretty decent pics.
Now onto the recipe : I was very tempted seeing the recipe in vardhinis space and here goes the recipe with my own adjustments.
Soya Chunks Cutlet Recipe- Ingredients
Recipe Referrence : Zesty Palette
- Soya chunks - 1 cup
- Onion - 1 medium sized
- Potato - 1 cup boiled and mashed
- Red chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
- Garam masala powder - 1/2 tsp
- Coriander leaves - 2 tbsp
- Oil - as required to toast / deep fry
- Salt- to taste
1. Pressure cook soya chunks for 1 whistle until soft. Wash it well atleast twice to get rid of the soya raw smell. Drain water completely and squeeze to remove excess water. Then mash it well.
2. Now in a wide bowl, add mashed potatoes, soya chunks, chopped onion, coriander leaves, red chilli, garam masala powder, required salt and mix well. Then saute the mixture in low flame for 3mins(this step is purely optional my mixture was little watery so did this)
3. Make the coating ready by mixing breadcrumbs with powdered oats. Make small round or oval shaped patties. Dip it in the breadcrumbs-oats mixture until coated well on both the sides.
4. Heat dosa pan with oil and toast it on both sides until golden brown. Serve hot with ketchup or green chutney. You can deep fry the cutlets too.It is apt for getogether and even kids parties. You can serve it with tomato ketchup or green chutney .
The cutlets are very soft and tastes soo good that even my little one liked it. Sure to be kids favourite and its healthy too with the addition of soya chunks and veggies in it. You can make the mixture in advance(not more than a day but) and then shallow fry it when needed.
My Notes :
- You can just soak the soya chunks in water for 15mins , squeeze the water completely then powder to a coarse mixture as mentioned in the orginal recipe. I preferred the pressure cooking way.
- You can use other veggies like carrot and peas too.
- When made for a gathering then deep frying is easy as toasting will be sure time consuming.
