Egg Cutlets with Pappu Charu (Toor dal rasam)

I lately realised that I'd completed my half century of posts..Time really flies...I never expected myself to be a regular blogger...

Well, for ppl who've gone thru my previous suthi post might be wondering why I blabbered a lot abt Eggs...becoz I made Egg cutlets on Friday...One of my favourite recipes with Eggs...They can be served as a starter or an accomplishment to a main meal...I also made Toor Dal Rasam (Pappu charu) which goes well with these cutlets....

Recipe For Egg Cutlet:


For cutlet,
Eggs - 3
Milk - 50ml
Ginger/Garlic paste - 1/2 tsp
Onions - finely chopped - 1 table spoon
Green chillies - finely chopped - 1 Tsp (2 chillies)
Salt - 1/2 - 1 tsp (adjust)

For roasting,
Oil - 1 table spoon
Onions - 1- Sliced
Garam masala (or coriander/cumin powder) - 1 tsp


1. Mix all the ingredients for cutlet in a bowl thoroughly.

2. Steam cook this mixture in a pressure cooker until 3 whistles. You'll get a cake like structure. You'll have to cut into pieces. Alternately you can put this mixture in idli plates (greased) and cook them like normal Idlis.

3. Keep these cutlets aside.

4. In a pan heat oil and saute the onions till they turn transperent. Add the garam masala powder and mix well.

5. Place these cutlets in the pan and cook them for about 5 min. Make sure that both the sides get cooked well(switch off the stove when they start turning brown).

Recipe for Toor Dal Rasam (Pappu Charu):

Toor Dal - 1 cup (washed)
Onion - 1 sliced
Green Chillies - 3 sliced and cut
Tomatoes - 1 cut into chunks
Tamarind juice - Extract from one lemon sized ball of tamarind
Water - 3-4 cups


1. Take all the above ingrdients in a pressure cooker and cook until 3 whistles.

2. After the pressure is released open the lid and slightly mash the dal

3. Add salt and mix well.

4. Make the popu (tadka) - Heat a tsp oil in kadai and add cumin, mustard, urad dal (1/2 tsp each) , 2 dried red chillies and garlic flakes. Curry leaves can be added too.

5. Add this popu to the toor dal rasam.

Serve the egg cutlets and pappu charu with rice.
