What are Soya Cutlets?

Soy is a legume. It is popular in Asian cuisine. For me, it is a replacement of meat. Although there are several types and forms of soy, what I am talking about are the soya chunks. And soya cutlets, very obviously mean the cutlets prepared with soya chunks. The best part about these soya cutlets is the texture and flavors. The cutlets have the flavor of ginger, green chilies, and black pepper. To give some binding to the cutlet mixture, boiled and mashed potatoes have been used. The soya cutlets have been pan-fried. We all know about the health benefits of soy. It is a complete protein. Therefore I love to add it to our diet in one way or the other. Soya cutlets are great for breakfast, further, these can also be used to make burgers.

Ingredients and Substitutes:

Soya Chunks: There are a number of sizes in which soya chunks are available in the market. I generally use the medium-sized soya chunks. They work great for gravies. However, any variety can be used for making soya cutlets as the chunks are anyways ground to a coarse paste. Well, what is important is to cook these properly.  And the same has been explained in the recipe.

Boiled Potatoes: Potatoes have been used as the binding agent for the cutlets. The number of boiled potatoes to be used might vary depending on the quality of potatoes being used and the moisture content of soya.

Spices and flavors: The soya cutlets have been seasoned with black pepper powder and salt. For flavoring, ginger has been used. All these flavors compliment each other very well.

Rice flour: Rice flour has been used which helps in making the cutlets crisp. It also absorbs the excess moisture of the mixture, if any. However excess rice flour should not be used otherwise the cutlets might become dry.

Oil: Not only these, but any cutlets can also be fried in three different ways i.e. they can be deep-fried, shallow-fried, or pan-fried. Deep frying is the unhealthiest way of cooking the cutlets. I love to pan-fry the cutlets which call for a drizzle of oil on the pan.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
