I love cutlets too. Or rather anything that is fried. What I wanted to know was, all purpose flour & maida... are they similar? And can I roll it over the rusk powder instead of the bread crumbs?

Love,
Ash.......

Madam, If you have made cutlets in heart shape it would have been nicer. In our mind cutlet has the identity in that shape..:)
