Prepartion Time: 20 mins Cooking Time: 60 min
Ingredients: Method:
  • 250 gms Chicken Mince
  • 1 medium chopped onion
  • 1 tbsp ginger paste
  • 1 tbsp garlic paste
  • Finely chopped coriander (hand full)
  • Finely chopped mint leaves (20 – 25 leaves)
  • Salt to taste


  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp red chili powder
  • 1 tsp garam masala / any masala
  • 1/2 tsp pickle masala (optional)

Binding Agent and Frying Ingredients:

  • 1-2 slices of bread
  • Rice Floor
  • Bread crumbs
  • 2 eggs

Cook the chicken:

  • Heat some oil in a pan
  • Add chopped onions
  • Add Ginger Garlic Paste. Sauté well.
  • Once the onions start changing its colour add chicken mince
  • Again Sauté well so that there are no big lumps of chicken mince remaining
  • Add turmeric, red chili powder, garam masala and the pickle masala and mix well
  • Add salt to taste
  • Add very little water if the chicken is too dry
  • Cover the pan and let the chicken cook for 15 mins

Make the chicken mixture:

  • Once the chicken is cooked, take it out in a big bowl.
  • Add the chopped mint and coriander leaves and mix the mixture well with fork 
  • Add 1 whisked egg and 1 slice of bread (roughly chopped) in the mixture as a binding agent
  • This will thicken the consistency of the mixture and we will be able to make cutlets out of it.

Fry the cutlets:

  • Once the chicken is cooled down, make medium sized balls
  • Take rice floor and bread crumbs in a small plate and 1 whisked egg in a bowl
  • Dip the chicken ball in rice floor for all sides and dust it will, we don’t want a thick layer of the floor to be on the cutlets
  • Dip this in the whisked egg so that it has a thin coat of egg on the cutlets
  • Finally coat the cutlet in bread crumbs and give the cutlet the shape you want
  • Shallow fry these cutlets on medium heat
