Meat cutlets

Meat cutlets

Crunchy on the outside and filled with succulent flavored beef on the inside, they are the perfect starters with mint chutney or ketchup. Well, as far as I am concerned I diligently pop them into my mouth without any accompaniments :)
I love cutlets and can't seem to have enough of the ones that my mother makes. I have never tasted any cutlet as good as that yet.  For this recipe, I am drawing inspiration from her cutlets. Oh man, that is setting the bar too high. Hopefuly, I will reach there someday!
Bon Appetit!
