coating preparation
3 Make breadcrumbs by using food processor. Dried and hardened baguettes will be good. The use of coarse, handmade breadcrumbs is highly recommended, as the larger crumbs absorb less oil than regular breadcrumbs. Make a batter with eggs and flour beforehand.

4 Scoop the meat mixture with a spoon, shape into small patties, and dip in a batter. Coat with breadcrumbs.

5 Heat the oil to medium. Deep fry the cutlets at about 175°C/ 350°F for 2-3 minutes, until they turn golden brown.

6 Serve on a serving plate. Garnish with shredded cabbage. Pour "Tonkatsu" Japanese Worcestershire sauce or "Ponzu" citrus based sauce with soy sauce, just before eating.
