Mushroom Cutlet

Mushrooms are a good source of antioxidants and vitamins, and they are low in calories. Mushrooms are available in different shapes, sizes, and colors. The ones that aren’t toxic happen to be quite healthy and tasty too.

Mushroom is being used for their unique ability to add flavor in lots of different dishes. Mushrooms are largely composed of water and shrink noticeably during cooking. It is best to use butter or good olive oil for cooking mushroom.

Mushroom Cutlet

Prepare a thick liaison of flour, water and salt. Spread the breadcrumb on a plate for coating.

Take small portion of the mushroom mixture and roll them between your palms to make a ball. Flatten it to get the shape of cutlet.  Use one hand to dip the mushroom mixture in the liaison, and use another hand to apply breadcrumb to coat the cutlet from all sides. Smoothen the edges to seal any cracks.

Heat the oil in a pan for frying. Place the cutlets on the hot oil and fry until both sides are golden brown.

Serve hot with tomato ketchup or chilly tomato relish.
