Kerala style Chicken Cutlets, a favourite snack of mine and it brings back many memories from my childhood whenever I have these Cutlets.

The texture of this cutlet and the embedded flavours make me crave for more. I cant stop at one or two, I will just keep on munching on them if a whole plate of these cutlets are in front me.

  • Keep the things ready for frying the cutlets, heat oil in a pan, beat the eggs in a bowl and the breadcrumbs in another plate.
  • Make medium size oval shaped cutlets of the filling prepared, dip a cutlet first into the egg mix and then roll over the bread crumbs covering all surfaces and slowly drop into oil. Repeat the same and do not overcrowd the pan.
  • Cook on medium low flame first till both sides change color, then turn the flame to medium high and fry till its golden brown.
  • Drain and keep aside on a wired rack, do not place directly on a tissue as the crispiness wont stay for longer.
