Cutlets: I have prepared vermicelli cutlets using sooji cutlets. These cutlets are super delicious and melt in the mouth, just perfect to be used for vermicelli coated cutlets. You can make semiya cutlets using any cutlet recipe given here.
Vermicelli: It is better to use the finer vermicelli to make vermicelli coated cutlets. The vermicelli should be roasted slightly. Thereafter the same should be crushed for proper coating. However, if you do not have the fine vermicelli, you can use the one we use regularly for vermicelli recipes. In fact, I have used the regular one in the absence of the finer ones.
Slurry: Absolutely smooth slurry using all-purpose flour, cornflour, and water should be used to make these cutlets.
Paneer: Grated paneer seasoned with a little salt is used to make edible eggs. However, I did not have paneer so I made eggs using rice flour, water, and salt taking help from the recipe given here.
You can use any cutlet recipe to make nest cutlets. It is important that before shaping the cutlets make sure the mixture is at room temperature. It should not be hot. Take a portion and make a small and bowl with it. Shape it well. A very shallow dent with not be visible after the coating etc. So make sure the cutlet is hollow enough. Dip the cutlet in the slurry. Use one hand to dip it in the slurry and use another hand to coat it with vermicelli. This will help you to do it neatly. Make sure to refrigerate the coated cutlets till the same are chilled.
