CHICKEN CUTLET

               AssalamuAlaikum to all my friends. How fast the days are passing by. I can’t believe that it’s already the 14th day of Ramadan. Really…? I mean … how fast… Ramadan is considered to be one of the most powerful months in our Islamic calender. It was in ths month that the Holy Qur’an was revealed to Prophet Muhammed (Swallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). And it is in this month, the Laylatul Qadr occurs, the night of all nights, The Night of Destiny. May Allah forgive all our sins and grant us Jannah.

Method

Heat oil in a pan. Add onion and salt and sautè till onion becomes transparent.

Add ginger-garlic paste and green chilli. Sautè till the raw smell evaporates.

Add pepper powder, garam masala and coriander leaves and mix well. Adjust salt.

Add the shredded chicken and mix. Turn off the flame.

Mash the potatoes and mix it well with the chicken mixture.

In a bowl, beat the eggs with a fork.

Spread some bread crumbs in a flat plate.

Wet you palm and make small balls of the chicken mixture.

Press flat between your palm and dip it it in the beaten eggs and then in the bread crumbs and set aside on a flat plate.

I had a diamond shaped mould. So I made it in that shape. Now-a-days we get cutlet moulds in various shapes and sizes.

Next, heat some oil in a frying pan and shallow fry the cutlets.

Enjoy the cutlets with your favourite dip.
