This is my mom-in-law’s recipe to a never fail chicken cutlet. This is one of my husband’s favorite and so is one that I make very often. Enjoy this crisp and delicious melt in your mouth cutlet that you would surely love.
  Minced chicken 1⁄2 Kilogram (Chicken Kheema)
  Onions 2 Large, finely chopped
  Green chilies 2 , finely chopped
  Ginger 1 Teaspoon, finely chopped
  Coriander leaves 1 Tablespoon, finely chopped
  Egg 1 (Beat And Use For Coating)
  Breadcrumbs 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
  Potatoes 2 Medium, mashed (Boiled)
  Turmeric powder 1 Pinch
  Red chilli powder 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Red chili powder 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Salt To Taste
  Fennel powder 1 Tablespoon
  Garam masala powder 1 Teaspoon

Cook the minced chicken with salt,turmeric powder and red chilli powder. Do not add any water as the chicken kheema would release a lot of water by itself. Let the water dry up completely.
Take a pan add 1 tbsp of oil. Add the chopped onions, green chillies, curry leaves and coriander leaves. Add the fennel seeds powder and garam masala powder. Saute for 20 seconds and mix with the cooked kheema. Run the mixture in the mixer for half a minute so that your cutlet does not crumble while frying. Add the potatoes and mix well.
Make balls of the desired size. Flatten it to the desired shape. Dip in the egg and then roll over breadcrumbs. Similarly make the remaining cutlets. The given quantity would make 17-20 cutlets.
Deep fry till golden brown.

This chicken cutlet recipe is among the first few that I learnt from my mom-in-law (as this is my husband’s favorite). Have been using this recipe for over 10 years now and it has got me a number of compliments each time. I prefer to deep fry the cutlets as they come out real crisp and tasty. You could even shallow fry if desired.
