1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder

How To Make Soya Cutlets
Soak the soya granules in water for 30 mins. Drain and squeeze out the excess water. Mince these granules finely in a mixer. Once again squeeze out all the excess water. Keep aside.
Heat 2-3 tablespoon oil in a pan. Splutter mustard seeds. Add onions, ginger garlic paste and green chillies and saute until browned. Now add all the spice powders along with salt and curry leaves and saute on low flame for 3-4 minutes. Add minced soya and saute for a couple of minutes. Lastly, add mashed potato and combine well before removing from fire. Allow to cool.
Once the mixture is cooled, shape them into cutlets. Dip each soya cutlet in the beaten egg and then roll in bread crumbs. The soya cutlets are now ready to be fried or stored for later use. You can store these in an airtight container in a refrigerator.
When its time to have them, deep fry these soya cutlets until nicely browned. Serve them hot with some ketchup or a dip.
