    Girl from India's Note:

    This is my cutlet recipe. I add with a little grated coconut added for a twist sometimes. I like to serve these with a tomato sauce or a dipping sauce, as an accompaniment to Pulao and raita or even dal and rice. Not very sure of the yield as it varies depending on the size of my cutlets. I do not like monotony so the the sizes vary ;)

    My Private Note




    Units: US | Metric

    • 1/2 kg beef mince (as fine as you can get or you can give it one round in a blender)
    • 2 tablespoons soya sauce
    • 2 tablespoons lime juice or 2 tablespoons vinegar (I use vinegar mostly)
    • salt (take into consideration the amount of salt that is in the soya sauce you use)
    • 3/4 inch cube gingerroot, minced fine (I sometimes use even more)
    • 6 -8 cloves garlic, minced fine
    • 1 teaspoon cumin seed, roasted and ground
    • 1 teaspoon coriander seed, roasted and ground (I make my own cumin and coriander powders this way and keep them in airtight bottles for upto a week)
    • 1 teaspoon cayenne powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon garam masala powder
    • 3 onions, minced fine
    • 12 mint leaves, chopped
    • 1/2 bunch cilantro, chopped
    • 2 green chilies (deseeded and chopped fine)
    • 1 cup freshly grated coconut or 1 cup desiccated coconut or 1 cup unsweetened coconut (if you are using dessicated coconut or unsweetened coconut instead of the fresh then soak in 1/2 cup) (optional)
    • black pepper
    • 1 egg, beaten
    • semolina or breadcrumbs, to coat
    • oil, for shallow frying


    1. 1
      Mix all upto the egg ingredients well.
    2. 2
      (You can blend them together too to a coarse paste for a variation) Form into 16-18 cutlets that are of a diameter of around 2 inches when flattened or make them 3 inches across so get around 11-12.
    3. 3
      Coat with the bread crumbs or semolina (I prefer the semolina).
    4. 4
      Heat a little oil in a pan (maybe a tblsp per round) to a medium high and shallow fry on low for around 5-6 minutes on each side (as many as the pan can take per round) or till they are cooked to the level you like.
    5. 5
      Add a little more oil if you require.
    6. 6
      I normally use non-stick pans and so need a minimum of oil.
    7. 7
      (1 litre lasts over a month and a half in my household).

      These were just so tasty, followed the recipe exactly, used desiccated coconut with the 1/2 cup of water, but didn't actually get a coconut flavour. I used 2 Jalapeno chillies (green) so they were rather spicy and made my cutlets big so only got 8 of them. Great recipe.
