Soya Chunks Cutlets Recipe, an easy cutlet recipe using soya chunks or meal maker. Confession time: this soya chunks cutlet recipe is almost entirely flicked from my sister. She has always been better with her hands than me, so my cutlets look more rugged as compared to her chubby, smooth ones. I am guessing it tasted as good though because these cutlets did taste pretty great.
If you are looking for a good vegetarian cutlet recipe, then this is the one, because soya chunks give a nice meatiness to the cutlets which is hard for vegetarians to come by. Even if you are not a huge fan of soya chunks, these may just turn you around because the infamous smell associated with soya chunks is absent in these cutlets and overall, these are healthier than meat / fish cutlets.
