hI Sarita, is this recipe similar to the cutlets served in Diana, Udupi. i hope it is, because i have always wanted to make those. I had cutlets in Diana recently, but somehow, they did not taste like the ones i used to have since my childhood. But the recipe you have posted does appears to be the one i have always loved. I am going to try this today. I will sure give you a feed back. Thank you.

the cutlets came out pretty good. i prefer shallow-frying the cutlets to deep frying. thanks a lot for the recipe.
