Persian Cutlet

Recipe by PalatablePastime

I first had these on a trip to California with my friend and his sister. We had them picnic-style, served cold, with nane lavash, and chutney. You can serve them warm also. They are good as an appetizer as well as a main course.

I hate to be critic, but.... I did try this recipe and wasnt very happy with it. Its not like the taste was horrible, but I just didnt like the texture of the patties once they were cooked.
