If you want quick cutlets you may use baked lobia available in tins in market.
Just drain them and refrigerate for some time before use.
Make the cutlets of same shape as of the bread you are using.
Deep fridge the cutlets and and fry directly in hot oil. You no need to defrost them.
Do not fry for more than a minute as everything inside does not need to be cooked.
For Dressing Sauce
To enhance the flavour you can use flavored cheese spread or mayonnaise.
Check if cheese spread or mayonnaise is suitable for vegetarians or not.
For Sandwich
Use your choice of bread. You can also try flavored bread here.
You may also use sliced onion, tomato or lettuce leaves instead of just cucumber.
