Cutlet - the evening snacks

Nowadays, Kerala people are more attracted to fried items and most of us prefer these, during our evening tea time. Cutlet is one among the favorite choices during evening time. In Christian wedding and Betrothal, cutlet is an inevitable presence.

Actually cutlet is an American cuisine and simply cutlet implies chicken cutlet. We do prepare cutlet using- Chicken, Beef, Mutton or even Fish. The vegetarian variety is also popular, as there are lots of vegetarian friends out here. Let me tell you something, I prefer cutlet during lunch rather than as snacks. Here I’m explaining the way in which Meat cutlet can be prepared using Kerala spices.

This is actually prepared by my mom and dad togetherly. Our Cutlet is famous among our realatives. if any function occurs, cutlet is a must seen item for the meal. Hope you will enjoy it.
