Step-By-Step Photos Showing Cooking
Boil hakka noodles in water, for 8-9 minutes or as directed on the packet. Drain the water, and run cold water over the noodles. Drain it once again. Keep the noodles aside.
Prepare a coarse mix of green chilli, garlic and ginger. Keep aside.
Take a mixing bowl. Pour all the ingredients upto 'salt to taste'. Add the ground masala mix. Sprinkle few drops of water if needed, to get a firm dough.
Cutlet Preparation and Cooking
Take out a lemon size dough and shape it like a cutlet. Prepare 6-8 such shapes. Heat a pan. Pour 1/2 tsp olive oil or any other cooking oil on the pan. Place the shapes on the pan. Pour few drops of oil on top of each shape. Let the heat be medium high.
Turn them upside down after 2-3 minutes. Pour few drops of oil on the top. Cook for 2-3 minutes. You can keep the pan covered during cooking. This will quicken the cooking process. Once both sides are golden brown, remove them on a serving plate. Noodles and cheese cutlets are ready to eat.
Serve hot cutlets with tomato sauce. Arrange the cutlets in an artistic way to please your kids!
You can also use vegetables of your choice, like fresh peas, french beans, carrot etc. in this recipe. See that you are not using too many veggies. If you are using carrot and french beans, parboil them before mixing with the dough.
