This is from my periamma’s kitchen, my mom’s elder sister named Lakshmi Devi. She was born in Chennai but went to Mumbai after her marriage and cook many variety dishes and also North Indian dishes. She is an expert in cooking and she serves food with lots of love. Love you periamma.

Once we are cooking yam for making fries during a function at home. This yam or karunai kizhangu got cooked too much and could not make fries. When we were wondering what to do next my periamma came and gave this idea to make yummy cutlet by dusting the outer with rice and sooji. Everyone liked it very much and all the cutlets got over. This is the story behind this recipe lol…
