This is exactly the cooking stage in which you decide what to do with the semifinished products further: freeze or fry them. Although, if you cooked a lot of cutlet mass, you can do both. When freezing, put the Greek in the freezer with the doshok, and as soon as they are properly frozen, separate them from it and put them in bags for further storage in the freezer.

Having decided to fry patties, pour vegetable oil into the pan and heat it red hot. Put boneless Greek inhabitants in it and fry them for about 3-5 minutes, then turn over to the other side and reduce the heat. Cover the pan with a lid and fry for another 10 minutes - so the meatballs are steamed from the inside.
