Baked soya cutlets are an oven baked soya chunks / meal maker cutlets. I have been preparing curries using soya chunks. So this time I wanted to prepare a quick snack recipe.
Baked snacks can be a healthier alternative to the deep-fried ones and after baking stuffed paneer baked bread rolls and oven roasted crunchy masala cauliflower, I was ready to try out a baked version of soya cutlets. The meaty texture works of soya chunks makes it equivalent to a meat cutlet.
