Easy Chicken Cutlet Recipe / Chicken Tikki Recipe

I am back after my long vacation. The tour was very fun and exciting throughout. But it had some plan change at the last minute. First our plan was to visit jammu and kashmir. But when we reached jammu we got the news that the roads to srinagar is blocked because of heavy rainfall, so our plans got changed and we visited himachal pradesh, punjab, amristar and dharamshala. It was so much fun, will be sharing pictures in facebook soon.

I love chicken cutlet, they are a very tasty snack. But in some bakery they just increase the amount of potatoes in them and reduce the chicken, i dont like that kind of cutlet. This is my way of making them. I like to use less potatoes and more chicken so you will get a tasty chicken cutlets. It is pretty easy to make as well.

  6. Hi Aarthi, this question I have is about ur trip, how did u manage the food for your little one, I am asking this because I have a 28 month old and am postponing such long trips just because I am not sure on how will I manage her food for more than 2 -3 days.. Your reply will be very helpful... Thanks

  7. @Anonymous since i have started giving all foods to her, somehow her palate managed it. Mornnig i used to give her nestum rice with milk. Inbetween bananas and apple and fruit juices. Afternoon, rice, paruppu podi and ghee or rice and milk, or ghee rice, or curd rice or dal rice.Evening boiled potatoes, which i used to order in hotels. then night nestum, idlies.

    Hi Aarthi, instead of chicken can we use mutton mince for the cutlet with the same procedure?

  11. Soya chunks can b used instead of chicken???

  12. Where did u get that chicken mince? Is it available as such in stores or u minced it at home? If done at home, will u tell me how?? I tried it in my mixer and my mixi had an awful smell after that!!!

  13. @Sophia Dennisoni used store bought mince. but if you dont get that, you can mince yourselves.After you minced chicken, wash your mixie well with soap and water, then wash it with hot water and lemon juice

  16. Hi arthi...
    How did you mince the chicken?

  17. @Anonymousi got it readymade from shop. you can mince it in a mixie

  18. hi Aarthi,
    Can we make the patties (before frying) in advance and keep it in the fridge?
    And just take it out when we need it and fry it? Will it become hard or will the taste change if its kept in the fridge?
