Add the onion, minced beef, turmeric, salt, and pepper to the potatoes, and mix. Put in the eggs and mix. Add a few tablespoons of all-purpose flour and knead them until consistent texture.
Step 3: Frying Kotlets
Pour some oil into a pan over medium heat.
Spread bread crumbs on a plate. Grab about 2 tablespoons of the mixture, roll it in the bread crumbs and shape it into a patty. Repeat with the remaining mixture.
Place the patties in the oil and fry both sides until golden brown.
Gently take them out of the pan and put them on kitchen paper to remove the excess oil.
