Goan Beef Mince Cutlets

The Goan Beef Mince Cutlets can be served as starters. You can also stuff them in a pao and make a gaoti burger. My children love to eat these any way it is served to them. They taste good cold too, so you can use them as tiffin fillers. ( For a recipe of Raw Beef Mince Cutlets, click here )

Step 2:     Place a pressure pan on heat and add the oil and the onions. Fry the onions till soft. Add the marinated mince and mix well so that there are no lumps. Cover with a flat lid and cook on low heat for 8 to 10 minutes till the mince releases its juices.

Step 3:     Now cover the pressure cooker with its lid and cook on high heat till one whistle. Then switch to low heat and cook for 15 minutes. Switch off the heat and allow the pressure to release naturally.

Step 4:     When the pressure has released completely, open the pan and cook further on medium heat till all the liquid evaporates and the mince has dried out.

Ingredients – 2nd Part:

  • Onions (finely chopped) – 2 medium
  • Potatoes (boiled & mashed) – 2 medium
  • Green Chillies (finely chopped) – 2 (optional)
  • Corriander Leaves (finely chopped) – a fistful
  • Egg – 1
  • Rawa [Semolina] (coarse or fine) – as needed
  • Oil – for deep or shallow frying

Step 5:     Once the mince has cooled, add the mashed potatoes, chillies, corriander, onions and egg and mix well. Divide the mixture in 16 to 18 balls. Shape each ball into a cutlet of desired shape and roll in the semolina to coat each entirely. Place in a plate, cover with cling film and keep in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.

    • Don’t make the cutlets too big. Remember to refrigerate. The temp of the oil is also important. You also have to be gentle. Add more bread or potato if you are not able to get them right.
