Method of preparation
    • Clean the minced meat thoroughly and set it to drain in a fine-meshed sieve or colander.
    • In a pan, heat 1 tsp Fortune Rice Bran Health oil and add in the whole spices -bay leaf, cardamom pods and cloves and saute till puffed and aromatic.
    • Add 2-3 tablespoons of the chopped onions (retain the rest to be added later), minced garlic and ginger. Saute till golden.
    • Add in the minced meat. It will immediately release a lot of water, keep the flame medium-high and let it cook through, till the water has dried out completely.
    • Continue tossing the meat, add in red chilli powder, turmeric, pepper and garam masala and cook.
    • When fully cooked through, and water is dried out, tip the mince into a mixing bowl and set aside to cool.
    • Add the mashed potato, remaining chopped onions, chopped green chillies, mint and coriander leaves and mix well
    • Break an egg into the mixture, add salt at the very end (as it releases water) and combine.
    • Shape into flat cutlets (about 24 pieces) and place them on a plate, cover with cling film and keep this in refrigerator for 1 hour minimum.
    • When ready to fry, heat 3-4 tbsp Fortune Rice Bran Health oil in a pan. Take some rava in a plate and coat the cutlets on either side before placing them in the pan to fry.
    • Gently flip the cutlets over when they are golden and take them out, drain on kitchen towels.
    • Serve hot as a side with pulao.
