TENDER JAK CUTLETS (KATHAL CUTLETS)


I have shared with you all before the recipe for Jak kebab.Kebab and cutlets are both from the 

same category.The only difference is that lentils are used in the binding for kebab,and potatoes 

are used to bind in cutlets.The crispiness in kebab can be got in the lentil itself,whereas the 

crunch in cutlets is got by the breadcrumb coating.When asked to chose which one can be

made quicker ??My vote will be for the kebab…One pot dish.Anyway let’s get into the recipe.

INGREDIENTS 

1 jak tender fruit

4-5 potatoes

2 onions/ spring onions/a cupful cut small onions

1 tsp ginger garlic paste

3 green chillies chopped fine

1.5 tsp cummin seed powder 

1 tsp pepper powder

1 tsp chilli paste

1 tblsp.lime juice.

1 tsp.garam masala 

salt to taste

Few curry leaves

1-2 tblsp oil 

Breadcrumbs for coating

Oil for frying .
METHOD

Peel the thick layer of the fruit ,and cut into small pieces .(discard core).Wash in salt water and 

cook it tilltender.Boil potatoes separately,and mash it lightly.

Heat oil in a pan and saunte onions,green chillies,ginger garlic paste,and curry leaves.Put the 

cooked jak pieces in a blender or food processor and blend for a minute.(to enable binding).

Add this to the sautéed onions,with the spices and finally the potatoes.Remove from fire .Add 

the mashed potatoes and make into cutlets.Dip in the flour batter or beaten egg.

Coat in breadcrumbs and fry to a golden color.

Note : You can add a slice of bread dipped in water and squeezed when binding to get a crispier texture.

Picture shows a different shape of cutlet.It is because I wanted to make grilled cutlets.So do according to your choice.
