Suggestions

  • If you want to boil the potato in microwave then place it in microwave and cook it for 4.5-5 minutes and 3 minutes is sufficient for cooking the bananas in microwave.
  • If you are making these culte s for fasting days then add buckwheat flour instead of corn flour and sendha salt instead of salt.
  • You can also deep fry the cutlets. If you are deep frying them then make sure you add apt amount of corn flour into it. If the cutlets are splattering into oil then add some more corn flour into the mixture. Oil should be sufficiently hot for frying the cutlets. If oil is less hot then cutlets will absorb too much of oil.
