How to make Soya Chunks cutlets?
Preparation time : 1hr
Cooking time : 20min
Makes : 25cutlets

Ingredients :

Soya Chunks / Meal maker : 2Cups
Onion : 2, medium sized,finely chopped
Potato - boiled, peeled and mashed : 2 medium
Green Chilly : 2finely chopped
Ginger : 1 inch piece, finely chopped

Coriander leaves : 1/4Cup
Chilly Powder : 1 tsp

Garam Masala : 1 tsp
Fennel (Perinjeerakam) : 1/2tsp(optional) 
Bread : 6-7slices, make breadcrumbs
Maida : 2tbsp mixed with water to make a loose batter / you can use 1 beaten egg

Method :

1. Soak the Soya chunks in enough water for 30minutes to make it soft. Drain and squeeze excess water from soya chunks. Now transfer it to a mixer grinder and mince it. Now squeeze the minced soya chunks / Meal maker again to make sure that there is no excess water. Keep aside.

2. Heat 1tbsp oil in a non stick pan and add Fennel seeds(optional). Now add chopped ginger, garlic and green chilly and saute for a minute.Now add onion and saute till it turns to translucent. 

3. Add all masalas in the same order and saute well. When you get the aroma of roasted masala, add minced soya chunks, salt and combine well. Cover the pan with a tight lid.

4. When it is cooked (3-5min) and water completely absorbed turn the gas into high flame and stir fry for 2 minutes. Make sure water is completely absorbed and then add mashed potatoes. Combine with the spatula and turn off the flame. Allow to cool.

5. Mix the mixture again using your hands and shape them into 25 cutlets. Dip in maida batter and cover with breadcrumbs. 

5. Deep fry and serve hot with Mayonnaise / Ketchup. 

Notes :

1. After covering the patties with bread crumbs you can refrigerate them and use within 5days.
2. Use appropriate vessel and Fry them on medium-high flame for even cooking. I use my appachatti for frying all starters. So it is easy to use less oil and i cook 3cutlets at a time.
