  1. hi there, quick question...what do you mean by grind? Put in food processor? Shred or grate? Also, do you add the juice rendered by the onion?
    Thanks!

  3. Recently I find out that I can bake kotlets in the oven on a slightly greased baking sheet. No frying! They come out moist and tasty, about 30-40 minutes in the oven, I turned them once in the middle.
