Goan Beef Cutlet

Goan Beef Cutlet

Popular as street food in Goa, the Goan Beef Cutlet is a thin slice of beef marinated, rawa coated and deep fried. The goan beef cutlet is served with pao and salad. I shallow fry the cutlets, thus using less oil. If you use ghee, the cutlets will get a better taste.
