Tips for Cooking
The Avalakki must be drained well before adding to the mixture. You can use a strainer and press lightly to rid the excess moisture.
You can add other vegetables like carrot, beans or capsicum to it, but ensure it is diced very fine or the cutlets will break while shaping.
You can prepare these in advance and freeze them in a single layer. Once thoroughly frozen, you can store them in ziplock bags and fry whenever you’d like!
