Talking about these suji cutlet /rava cutlets, they are made with very few ingredients mostly available at home. Today I made them in heart shape but you can make any shape of your choice. Also I have used bread crumbs to coat the cutlets. To make them just break bread in small pieces and grind them in grinder. Do not grind them very fine. They should be little coarse. It is important that you should fry these suji cutlets for little long time otherwise they will not be cooked properly and all the way to inside.
If you want to try something chatpata and quick do try these cute heart shaped suji/rava cutlets. I am sure your valentine will love it :).
Here are some tips on how to make perfect suji cutlets
- Always use upma rava for this recipe. Idli rava or fine rava may not work for this recipe.
- Start making the cutlets while mixture is still warm and easy to handle. Once it cools down completely you cannot shape the cutlets.
- You can make any shape cutlets of your choice.
- After rolling the cutlets in bread crumbs gently press it from all the side so that bread crumbs get stuck to the cutlet and will not come out while frying.
- Fry them only on medium heat so that they are cooked completely from inside.
