soya chunks cutlet

Adding soya chunks to the meal provides easy option for cooking up protein rich meal. Recently my kids are fascinated about soya chunks. I have posted number of dishes with soya chunks. I have done this cutlet many times. It can be served as snack or patties to the burger. Perfect for busy weekday dinner or lazy weekend snack/dinner.

Soya chunks / Meal Maker - 1 and 1/2 cups
Potato - 2 nos, small size
Oil - to fry cutlets
Cumin seeds - 1/2 teaspoons
Curry leaves - 3 strings, finely chopped
Coriander Leaves - 1 tablespoon finely chopped
Red chilli powder - 2 teaspoons
Coriander powder - 1 teaspoon
Garam masala - 1/2 teaspoon
Salt - to taste
Turmeric powder - 1/2 teaspoon
All purpose flour - 1 tablespoon
Corn flour - 1 tablespoon
Water - 1/4 cup or as required to make medium consistency batter
Breadcrumbs - 1/2 cup
Cooked peas -1 tablespoon ( I have used frozen one. Thaw the peas to room temperature  and cook in microwave for 1 and 1/2 mins)


Wash potatoes and pressure cook or boil them. Once done, peel the skin and mash it well. Meanwhile, add the soya chunks in the boiling water with a pinch of salt for 15-20 minutes(or cook as per the package instructions) and squeeze out the excess water. Mash it using fork or grind it in a mixer. Squeeze again the excess water. Add cooked peas, turmeric powder, garam masala, Red chili powder, salt, coriander powder, curry leaves and coriander leaves. Mix well. Make to a soft dough. And make orange size balls

In a small size bowl, Mix all purpose flour and corn flour and make a medium consistency batter by adding water.

Broader plate take breadcrumbs. Heat flat tawa/pan. When it is hot, dip the patties into the flour mixture one by one to make a coating and then make a coating of bread crumbs.
Put them in the hot pan and cook till the side are slightly turned brown. Flip to cook other side.
Repeat the procedure for the rest of the patties
