Recipe : Brain Cutlets

On my recent review of Daddy's Deli, Bangalore, I had described their wonderful brain cutlets, so a friend asked if I knew how to make them.

There was a time when we made these cutlets quite frequently at home, but nowadays, its really tough to get clean mutton brains in a quantity large enough to make these cutlets, especially in Ahmedabad. You will normally find these cutlets (if available) in a Parsi restaurant / cafe.

Its pretty easy to make at home, if you get brains that are completely cleaned.

Method :
Clean the mutton brains and cook in water salt and pepper.

Drain the brains, mash them and mix finely chopped onions, green chillies, fresh coriander and salt & pepper to taste.
(proportion - mashed brain 80-90% and 10-20% cuttings)

Form into cutlets.
Dip in a beaten egg and fry. (deep fry is better, but shallow frying works too and is healthier)

Serve hot with tomato sauce or green chutney.

The creamy flavour with the kick of green chilli is delightful.

How do we freeze the cutlets?? With or without egg??

I wouldn't freeze these. It would ruin the texture and consistency
