I was little apprehensive, initially to try this out. Quick bites like Chicken cutlets, Beef Cutlets, Paneer cutlets, Fish cutlets, Potato croquettes, Calamari rings, Chicken 65, Banana fritters, Samosa, Spring rolls etc. are heartily relished and are much in demand here. As for Soya, I always felt it was plain and bland, so I was scared to try. Hence, I delayed making Soya cutlets, although, I brought this Soya Granules packet long back. When I first prepared Soya Manchurian, I had the same inhibition, but it turned out super scrumptious! It was my dear friend Blessy, who assured me about Soya cutlets and encouraged me to give it a try. The new snack was welcomed wholeheartedly and I was overjoyed.
Soya granules/ Kheema turned out easier to cook than soya chunks. Initially, I made this mistake of using the entire 500 gms packet, and I had to keep aside almost half of it as I had not enough potatoes. For making the cutlet mix, I added spices generously with carrot, onions and also some fresh coriander leaves. First time, the Soya cutlet mix was little sticky because of the starchy potatoes. consequently, I added some bread crumbs to the mix and shaped them. But the second time, the potatoes were good and it came out perfect.
