Baked Soya Bread Cutlets

Its been a while I prepared some baked snacks. As I have mentioned before, I prefer baking to deep frying. Soya chunks cutlet was in my mind from long time. Finally yesterday I prepared the soya and bread cutlets. I like soya chunks rather than the soya granules. You can use soya granules if you want. But I pulsed the soya chunks in the blender and made a mixture of it which helped to make cutlets easier. Soya is rich in protein and I added some veggies too. Baking made it more healthy. Enjoy these soya bread cutlets with a hot cup of coffee or tea !!






What you need?

1 cup Soya chunks
5-6 Bread slices
1/2 cup finely chopped Onion
1/2 cup finely chopped Vegetables of your choice
1/2 tsp Cumin seeds
1 tsp Ginger-Garlic paste
1/2 tsp Chilli powder
1/2 tsp Coriander powder
1/2 tsp Garam masala
a few Coriander leaves chopped
1 tsp Oil
Salt
Lime


How to prepare?

Boil 3-4 cups of water. Add soya chunks to the water and let it cook for 5-10 minutes.Drain the water and allow it to cool. Gently squeeze out the water from the soya chunks. Put them in a blender and pulse it 5-6 times and you will get a coarse mixture of the chunks.

Heat oil in a pan. Splutter cumin seeds. Add the onions and ginger-garlic paste. Saute until the onions turn pink. Now add the veggies and saute until they are almost cooked. Add the soya chunks mixture, salt and the spices-chilli powder, coriander powder and garam masala. Saute for 2-3 minutes and finally add the coriander leaves. Sprinkle some lime juice if you desire. Keep this mixture aside and allow it to cool.

Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a baking tray with aluminium foil.

Take each bread slice, dip in water and squeeze out the water. Add these bread slices to the soya-veggie mixture  and  mix well to form a dough. Make small balls out of it, flatten them, apply a little oil on both the sides and place them on the tray.

Bake for about 25-30 minutes until they turn brown. Flip them after 20 minutes or so. All ovens vary and so keep an eye on the oven. Serve warm with tomato sauce.

Makes about 10-12 medium size cutlets.
