20140306-073625.jpg

Ingredients:
1 pack extra firm Tofu
2 tbs Coriander paste
2 tbs Pani Puri paste
½ tsp Black pepper
1 cup Panko bread crumbs
½ a cup Fried onions
2 Eggs
1 tbs Parmesan Cheese
1 tbs Green Onions – chopped
1 Green Chili – diced
1 tsp Red Chili powder
Salt to taste
Pam Olive Oil to fry

Method:
Mix the above ingredients except the oil and form cutlets.
Let the cutlets sit for a few minutes to harden up a bit.
If the Tofu feels to soft add some extra bread crumbs or even a piece of bread.

Heat a nonstick pan with Olive oil and add the cutlets slowly.
Use a spoon to keep the cutlets intact.
Be careful not to break the cutlets (gentle is good, esp while flipping)
Brown on either side and your cutlets are ready.

I tried a second batch with regular vegetable oil – shallow fry.
This was harder to flip than the Olive oil spray but they both tasted pretty good.

Tasted even better the next day when the ingredients completely took in all the flavors.
