Beef Cutlets | Bohra Style Cutlets

MR grew up in a predominantly Gujrati neighborhood; while the perks were many, one of them indeed was access to some great food. He remembers have Beef Cutlets from a snack shop run by a member of the Bohra community; while the taste journey went on he couldn’t really find a replacement to one of the favorite snacks of his childhood. Along came 704 Kitchen where MR started experimenting and trying to re-create his favorite dishes from around the town. He finally cracked the Cutlets recipe which he believes to be at least second to the original shop in Soldier Bazar, Karachi.


  1. Beef – 250gms (mince)
  2. Fresh Coriander – Handful
  3. Green Chillies – 2
  4. Onion – 1 (small)
  5. Salt – to taste
  6. Red Chilli Flakes – 1 tsp
  7. Cumin Seeds – 1/2 tsp
  8. Garam Masala Powder – 2/3 tsp
  9. Bread Slices – 2 (soaked in water and squeezed)
  10. Ginger-Garlic paste – 1 tsp
  11. Bread Crumbs – for coating
  12. Egg – for coating (whisked)


  • Pulse the beef, fresh coriander, green chillies, onion, salt, red chilli flakes, cumin seeds, garam masala powder and soaked bread slices together in a food processor.
  • Add ginger-garlic paste to the pulsed mixture; mix again in the food processor.
  • Make balls of the mixture, coat them with bread crumbs and flatten them to make cutlets with size of your own liking.
  • Dip the coated cutlet in a whisked egg, shallow fry on medium flame for 3-4 minutes on each side.
