Gluten Free Masoor Dal Cutlet Recipe is a satiating party appetizer or teatime snack with crisp exterior and soft kebab like texture underneath. The term cutlet defines a flat croquette of minced meat, nuts, or pulses, typically covered in breadcrumbs and shaped like a veal chop. There are no second thoughts about cutlet being not deep-fried. The crunchy outer layer is the disguise for mouth melting layer inside. And needless to say cutlet is always accompanied by a delectable relish to compliment the flavors. There is undoubted snack food comfort in dunking hot cutlet in chilled dressing. On certain evenings a bowl full of cutlet paired with refreshing dip and a glass of chilled beer, is all you need to compensate for a mundane day. At times when you want to let go off the calorie count meter and indulge in a sinful food experience, then cutlet fits well into the picture.
Masoor Dal Cutlet is prepared with pink lentils, hence making it a fantastic gluten free appetizer choice. These Masor Dal Cutlets become our in-house special party appetizer since New Year eve’s get together. That was the first time I tried the recipe inherited from a distant aunt. No doubt it stole the limelight on dinner table. The bold dhaniya – pudina chutney (coriander and mint chutney) was the perfect choice of accompaniment for the Masor Dal Cutlet. On one of the occasions, I served these Masor Dal Cutlets heaped with tomato salsa and green chutney. The combination was delightful symphony of flavors and also a fuss free finger food. The trick to store Masoor Dal Cutlet for more than a day is not to fry it, simply shape the cutlet and store in an airtight container in the fridge. For a pre – planned jamboree ate home or potluck dinner parties, a large batch of Masor Dal Cutlet prepared well in advance, always comes handy.
