After dipping it into the mixture place them in bread crumbs. Press the cutlet from all the sides (so that the crumbs stick to the cutlet nicely) place them on the plate.
Prepare cutlets from the entire mixture. Leave the cutlets as it is for 15 minutes so that they get fermented.
Deep fry or shallow fry the cutlets.
To shallow fry pour 2-3 tbsp oil in a frying pan or tawa to heat it up(use of non stick pan and tawa is preferable). After the oil is heated, put as many cutlets as possible in the pan. Keep them so that they get roasted well. If you feel the oil is less,pour more oil on the cutlets.
Cook cutlets on medium flame and turn them over and over again until they become brown. Cook all the cutlets in the same way.
