Quick Recipe for Cabbage Cutlets


  • 1 small head of young cabbage,
  • 2 eggs,
  • 1/2 cup of flour,
  • 1/2 cup of milk,
  • sweet paprika powder,
  • salt, pepper,
  • oil for frying.

Just a few simple steps to get those cutlets crispy and flavorful:

  1. Prepare the cabbage: Wash the young cabbage thoroughly and slice it into 3/4 inch thick pieces—season with salt and pepper to your liking.
  2. Prepare the batter: In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, eggs, milk, salt, pepper, and paprika until you achieve a thick pancake batter consistency.
  3. Fry the cutlets: Heat the oil in a pan. Coat the cabbage slices well with the batter and fry them until they are golden brown on both sides, about 3-4 minutes per side.

These cabbage cutlets can be paired wonderfully with a variety of side dishes. They're a perfect match with classic mashed potatoes, or for a change, try serving them with buckwheat or rice. To enhance the cutlets further, consider accompanying them with sauces, like a creamy herb-based sauce or a yogurt-garlic sauce.
