Pressing the Moong sprouts onto the cutlet's surface is an interesting idea. I'm sure these should turn out to be good-looking cutlets. But will the sprouts not burn while being shallow-fried?
That's a great snack recipe, by the way.

Good question. Since I didnot try it myself. I will have to ask my sis R and revert pronto!

Vaishali, R replies:
They are to be deep fried till they turn brown but not dark brown. They should be fried.

Moong sprouts will definitely add to the taste. It may not burn if cooked in medium flame.

Hi Priyamudan amma (Am not sure if thats your name or not!)...U answered both mine and Priya's query. That is also what R, my sis said, but I couldnt word it well enough. They should be fried...but not burnt!
