  1. Hi,
    I tried the recipe, but i did not know when exactly to remove them. Is the interior part still supposed to be that soft after frying? And my exterior was not getting fried evenly. Some places were getting burnt faster. Also, the bread crumbs wer coming out in the oil and sticking to the pan. Is there something that im doing wrong?

    • the only way to check and remove is that the outside should be crisp and golden. the inside will be soft but yet have some firmness. it will not be very soft. when a good heavy tawa or pan is used, the cutlets fry evenly. when a heavy pan is not used, it is always better to fry on a low to medium-low flame for even frying and crisping. some of the breadcrumbs will fall off in the oil but it won’t stick. it will kind of loosely float in the oil. here i feel it is the pan which is the culprit and giving so many issues.

  2. As usual your recipes are superb 👌🏼I got to confess whenever we have bread there is the first and last slice no one wants to eat!! So this recipe was perfect to use those slices😊5 stars

  3. Just made these….easy….and delicious! Boiled cut up unpeeled thin skinned potatoes. Drained, then mashed along with peas…removing any separated pieces of skin as needed. Added the finely, finely chopped garlic and ginger…no mortar and pestle, the coriander, and remaining seasonings…tasted…then added a little more seasoning. Added two slices of moistened and squeezed bread and mixed in well with hands. Shaped into small patties, coated with breadcrumbs….could also use Panko crumbs….then fried on either side until golden…and a little crispy looking. Could hardly wait until they had cooled enough to sample….two already gone! Wish I had the ingredients on hand to make the dipping sauce…not being an Indian kitchen, these items I must purchase ahead…or run to my local indian deli to pick up a variety of their yummy sauces! Tasty….and will be enjoyed by my vegan daughter! Thanks!5 stars

    • thanks anne for sharing the feedback as well as your method. mortar and pestle is not needed 🙂 ginger-garlic can be chopped finely like you have done or even minced or finely grated. and i do agree with panko breads crumbs the texture will be much better. yes do keep some of the indian dipping sauce (we call them as chutneys) in the fridge. they taste great with any indian snack.
