Option 1 – Salt & Pepper
Option 2 – Salt, Pepper & Milk
Option 3 – Salt, Pepper & Curry Powder
3. Shape the mixture into a patty, any shape you like.
4. Dip the patty in this sequence: Flour – Egg – Bread crumbs/panko
5. Layer cling wrap in a container/ tray to avoid the patty from sticking and leave it in the freezer for 1 hour or so. Fry it whenever needed.
6. In a deep pan, fry the patty until golden brown.
