Cutlets are generally a heavy snack, deep fried and full of calories. Generally made using potatoes. But this version of cutlet is super healthy, protein rich and will help you lose some weight!

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 cup soya granules (I used nutrela)
  • 2 tablespoons besan(gram flour)
  • 3/4 teaspoon coriander seed powder(dhaniya masala)
  • 1/2 teaspoon red chilli powder
  • 1-2 green chillies chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon garam masala
  • salt to taste (1/2 teaspoon)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic(grated or finely chopped)
  • 3/4 teaspoon ginger paste
  • 2 tablespoons oil (I used refined soyabean oil)
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice(optional)
  • 1/2 cup fresh bread crumbs

Recipe Preparation

  1. Soak soya granules in 2 cups of boiling hot water. Leave this aside for 10-15 minutes.
  2. Pass this through a strainer and press the granules gently to squeeze out excess water. Remove this in a bowl. Grind them finely.
  3. Heat 1 tbsp. oil in a pan and saute garlic in it. Add green chillies and besan and roast the besan for 5 minutes or until it changes it's colour a bit.
  4. Add bread crumbs and roast them for a minute. Add ground soya granules and some salt and mix well.
  5. Add enough water to bring the mixture together. Remove the mixture in a plate.
  6. Make small balls of the mixture. Heat 1 tbsp. oil in a pan and shallow fry these cutlets in hot oil on both sides until crips brown.
  7. Serve these hot with a chutney/sauce along with some lemon juice drizzled on top.
My Tip: You can even fry these in an air fryer.
