  23. Take another bowl and break an egg into it.
  24. Add in a pinch of salt to the egg and beat the egg well and keep it aside.

  26. Now coat this cutlet shaped mixture with the roasted vermicelli.
  27. Repeat the same process(step 25 and step 26) with the rest of the cutlet mixture and keep it aside(You can either fry them right away or store them and fry it later before eating).
  28. Turn on the gas and place a tawa or a frying pan.
  29. Add in the oil and let it heat for a minute.
  30. Once the oil is heated up, take your raw cutlet and dip it in the egg and then put it in the pan and fry it.
