Cutlets are one of my favourites and chicken cutlets are really yummy.But then ,I always used to fry the cutlets .Then I happened to eat baked vegetable cutlets from one of my frenz and so came the idea of avoiding the excess oil .Let me tell you the baked ones also tasted equally good and healthy too.They make a guilt free snack.Do try n enjoy !!
chicken 150 gms
potato 2 mashed
onion 2 choppped
green chilli 4-5
carrots grated 1/2 cup
ginger garlic paste 1tsp
Coriander leaves or cilantro 1/2 cup
pepper powder 1tsp
garam masala 1tsp
Bread crumbs 1 cup
egg white 1
Cook the potatoes in a pressure cooker until 3-4 whistles with skin.Then,drain water and add cold water.Peel the skin off and mash it well.
Cook the chicken with salt and pepper.Drain the stock and mince the rest in a mixer after cooling.
Grate the carrot,cut green chillies,chop onion,cilantro and keep aside.
Place a pan on medium heat and pour oil. add the ginger garlic paste and saute well.
Put the onion and saute for 5 minutes.Add the green chillies,carrot and cilantro.
Put the pepper powder,salt.Cook for 3-4 minutes.Add the mashed potatoes and check the salt.
Remove from heat and cool it.Shape small balls into cutlets.
Place the egg white in a bowl. and bread crumbs in another plate.Dip the cutlets into egg white and then roll it in bread crumbs.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F /180 degrees C and place the cutlets in an oil sprayed tray.Spray oil on top of each cutlet too lightly.Place it in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes in all.Half way turn the cutlets upside down and place again.Broil the last minute to get a browned effect if necessary.
