Soya Chunks Cutlet Recipe (Meal Maker Cutlet Recipe)
Soya Chunks which is also called as Meal Maker here is my favorite stuff. I can eat it all day, I don’t know why. But I totally like it. The one thing which put me back is the smell of that, so I use a special way to treat it which I have shown in the pictures. Addition of milk to the cooking water remove the funky smell from it. So if you are fine with that smell skip this step, but if you are like me, please follow this.

What is Cutlet
A cutlet is a thin slice of meat from the leg or ribs of mutton, veal, pork, or chicken. A cutlet-shaped croquette or ground meat patty is a dish made from such a slice and is frequently breaded.
In French cuisine, cutlets, a variation of croquettes with a shape resembling a small rib, were a common starter. A piece of pasta or fried bread was used to represent the bone. The recipe gained popularity throughout all of Europe as a result of French cuisine influence.

Ingredients for Soya Chunks Cutlet Recipe
By themselves, they have no flavour or smell, providing every cookwith a clean slate. The boiled nuggets are a delight to cook with because of their spongy texture, which is ready to absorb any flavours you dunk them in.
Dry breadcrumbs are commonly used as a topping for gratins, casseroles, and other similar dishes to add a crunchy textural dimension. Fresh breadcrumbs are an excellent binding agent, which is why they are frequently used in meatloaf and stuffing recipes.
Corn Starch :
It functions as a thickening agent. Corn starch is also combined with flour in baking formulas to increase crumb strength while also increasing grain tenderness.
