Soya Chunk Cutlets


A thought about thinking less



And another one 
I admire people who likes to keep silence,
I wish I could be like them 
:(



Have a very nutritious appetizer - recipe to share, though it can no way help me talk less ;) 
It definitely helps to keep our-self healthy and fit,  since Soy-chunks are packed with Protein and Fiber. 



Ingredients 

Soya Chunks - 3 cups (Approx) - soak in water for 1/2 an hour before using. 
Potatoes - 2 medium sized ( boiled and mashed.)
Onion - 1 medium (finely chopped)
Garlic - 5 to 7 no's (finely chopped )
Ginger - 2 tbsp (when crushed) 
Green chili's - 2 to 4 no's chopped (Adjust as per your preference)
Cilantro & Mint - 1/4 cup finely chopped (Optional- may not use if you don't like its flavor) 
Salt to taste 
Oil - 2 Tbsp 

Spice- Mix 

Garam Masala - 1 tsp 
Red chili powder or use Kashmiri Chili Powder - 2 Tsp (Adjust according to your preference) 
Coriander Powder - 2 Tsp
Turmeric Powder - 1/2 tsp 
Black Pepper crushed - 1/2 tsp 


For frying 

Bread Crumbs (or else use Rava/Semolina) - for coating 
Egg (or else Thick Butter milk) - for coating 
Oil - for frying.


Method 

* Soak Soya chunks in water for at least 1/2 an hour then cook the same with enough salt added to it, until it becomes tender, takes about 15 minutes, drain away the water and shred the chunks using a food processor or blender. Keep these aside. 



* Heat Oil in a pan , add finely chopped onion, garlic, ginger and green chili's , saute these till they start to turn brown.

* Add cooked, shredded chunks to it and stir nicely, cook in medium to high heat until any water in it evaporates. 

* Sprinkle all the spice mix to it, while you keep on stirring, add chopped cilantro, mashed potato & salt to taste , just before you switch off the heat. 



* Once the mixture is cooled, take about 2 tbsp of the mixture each to shape it (I made Oval shape)


* Dip each Cutlets in lightly beaten eggs / or thick Butter milk then coat'em with bread crumbs or Semolina/ Rava.

* May store these in  air tight containers, stays in refrigerator for 2 to 3 days or else may freeze these. 

* Deep fry or shallow fry Soya chunk Cutlets.


 Serve hot with Ketchup and / or Onion Salad.
