Mushroom Cutlet

How are y'all doing? Well, here I am back from a blissful time in Fl, spending time with family and goofing around. Though we spend almost a week there, I wish we had more time. It was a bit chilly there , yet it was definitely better than the cold snowy winter gloom here , that i was about to walk around without bundling up.

Lots of fun , Laughter and good food and of course the late night card games !!!! Yes Blissful times!!

Every time we are in Florida , we make sure we pay a visit to "Shamu" in Sea world and this time was no different. We are soo so much in love with this show.


You guessed wrong!!! i did not make this after coming back..In fact nothing 's been cooking in my kitchen ever since I am back :)...I made this on a snowy day in early Jan . Who wouldn't like to munch on something hot and spicy on a snowy day , curling up on your couch. This mushroom cutlet was made on such a day to make that lazy wintery feeling perfect. We make cutlets once in 2 weeks , mostly with fish and when i saw a pack of mushrooms lying idly in my refrigerator , it reminded me of the mushroom cutlets my mom makes. It such an easy thing to make and the wonderful aroma that diffuses into air while we fry it makes you all the more excited.

Serve it with Store bought or home made mint chutney or regular ketchup if you prefer and a hot cuppa cocoa ...oooh!!!!

Mmmmm...these look wonderful. I would like to take a bite when they are nice and hot. Your mint chutny looks wonderful. I have some mint growing nice right now. I did drag the clay pots under the carport for a couple nights when we were supposed to get a freeze, but we live close to the Gulf we don't get it as bad. We are back in the 70s fo a little while almost normal temps.

These are on my "to make" list.

Sarah Naveen said...

Hey Anon!!!
Thanks a lot for trying it :)...
about the shape i know ..., for me it depends a lot on time and mood ;)..hahhahaha.

Anonymous said...

Hi Sara. You have the best collection of mushroom recipes in Kerala style I must say. Have tried many and liked all

Anonymous said...

hi

great post nd presentation..want to try for a potluck :) how many cutlets can u make with measurments mentioned in post??

Teena

Sarah Naveen said...

Teena...I made around 6-8 cutlets with this measurements..it depends a lot on your palm size too ;)..

Joe said...

Hi Sara, i used to try ur recipes.ur cutlet looks awesome.i wanna to try something difft with mushroom.So i tried this and it came out good. i struggled to maintain the shape since i used less oil initially.later i added more oil . I suggest you to add one tip in ur recipe, the oil should be hot enough as we put a small piece of cutlet mixture it should come on top of oil, otherwise cutlet will break when u fry..learned from experience:-).it would be helpful for first time cutlet maker like me :-).Thanks for ur recipes sarah.
