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.
