Bread Cutlet.

Bread cutlet is one of the easy snacks to make especially when there is lots of leftover bread laying around. This is an easy version of bread cutlet without any potato involved. Bread is chopped up and mixed with chopped vegetables. Juices from tomato soften the bread and the mixture is made into cutlets and fried on flat pan with less oil till golden brown.
Makes: around 6 Wheat Bread Cutlet.

Ingredients:

Wheat Bread 7
Onion 1 Small
Tomato 1
Green Chiles 2
Ginger 1/2 inch Piece
Roasted Peanuts 2 tbsps
Lemon Juice 1 tbsp
Mint few Sprigs
Cilantro few Sprigs
Fine Sooji 2 tbsps
Salt to taste
Oil 1 tbsp

Method of preparation:

Remove the bread crusts if they are too thick and finely chop the wheat bread slices.
Remove stems, wash and finely chop the green chiles.
Peel and mince the ginger.
Peel, remove ends and finely chop onion.
Wash and finely chop tomato.
Wash and finely chop mint leaves and cilantro.
Spread sooji on a flat pan and keep aside.

In a mixing bowl, add chopped wheat bread, green chiles, ginger, onion, tomato, lemon juice, mint leaves, cilantro, roasted peanuts and salt.
Mash the mixture with a masher. Juices from tomato and lemon softens the bread.
After a minute or two, take a big scoop of the wheat bread mixture into the hands and form into a ball.
Lightly press the bread mixture ball to flatten and adjust any rough edges.
Now press both sides of the bread cutlet on the sooji to cover the bread cutlet with a layer of fine sooji.
Alternatively, bread crumbs can be used in place of fine sooji.
Remove the crusted bread cutlet on to a plate.
Repeat the same with the remaining bread mixture.

Heat a flat pan on medium high heat, apply few teaspoons of oil.
When pan gets hot, carefully arrange the bread cutlets on the pan and drizzle little oil on each bread cutlet.
Reduce the heat to medium and cook on both sides till golden brown.
Serve easy wheat bread cutlet with chaat chutneys or tomato ketchup.
Notes: Make sure to cook the bread cutlets on low flame for the insides to cook.

Suggestions:If the bread mixture is not coming together into a ball, which happens when tomato is not juicy enough, add a tbsp of water to soften the bread and bind it together.
Variations:You can also add in some mashed potato for binding. If you don’t like to bite into green chiles and ginger, grind them together coarsely. You can also add ground spices like cumin powder, garam masala powder, etc to taste. Bread cutlets can also be cooked in oven or on a grill.
Other Names:Bread Kebab, Bread Cutlet.

    @mayuri thx
    @Sravanthi Rao
    trick is to use no or less water but the juices from tomato to hold it together. To make small patties so the inside cooks.
    try chesinanduku thanks andi.
