When u do the egg wash make sure you retain the shape of the cutlets. Else you can also go for brushing beaten eggs on the cutlet.
Egg wash can be skipped and maida/all purpose flour can be used instead. Mix maida in water until watery. Dip the cutlets in it and roll in rusk powder. Egg/Maida serves as binding agent.
