Thanks everyone..I love cutlets and experimenting to make new yummy ones.
Mathangi, the idea of rolling it like a kaju katli is really good..
I avoid dipping cutlets in wet covers (like all purpose flour) as they tend to absorb more oil when being fried, so i use a dry,'dusty' base to coat them..i roll them in dry all purpose instead.

Rolling them in the 'batter' like you said gives a lovely coat and tastes 'yum',so it is welcome too..

Tasty Yummy cutlet roll
by: mathangi k kumar

Apart from the ingredients mentioned, one can mix a teaspoon of Saunf - aniseed , 1 string of fresh coriander leaves, finely chopped to improve the taste.

Also before shallow or deep frying, the cutlet can be dipped in all purpose flour. [Take a small cup all purpose flour, mix it with water to a thin paste].

To give attractive look the stuff can be rolled like Kaju khatli and deep fried. It becomes cutlet roll.
