“These are quite common in India... This is my version! I buy bakery breadcrumbs b/c they just taste better than the "stuff" you buy in cans at the grocery store... and I get 2xs the amount for 99cents. Servings will depend on how large/small you make your cutlets.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put your onion, chiles, garlic, turmeric and mince in a pan over high heat and cook mixing often for around 15 mins (you dont need to add any oil/fat).
  2. Poke the potatoes with a fork, wrap in moist papertowels, and microwave according to your microwave settings.
  3. I have a baked potato setting, and they are done in around 6 minutes on my baked potato setting, but each microwave is different.
  4. After 15 mins of cooking the mince, turn heat off, add lemon juice, black pepper, garam masala, cilanto and salt.
  5. Transfer to a bowl lined with paper towels to drain excess oils/fat.
  6. Remove skins from cooked potatoes and mash thoroughly making sure there are no lumps.
  7. Mix potatoes into meat mixture.
  8. Now shape the mixture into cutlets (I usually make them into oval shaped cutlets about 1/2 inch thick).
  9. dip into egg mixture and coat with breadcrumbs.
  10. Shallow fry in a frying pan until golden brown and serve hot!
