A little late to post last week's Saturday Snapshots.The theme this week was to shoot whole tomatoes on a dark background.How's mine,Frenz ??


Adapted : asianet cookery show
Ingredients
boneless chicken 250 gm(1/2 lb)
onion 1 small
green chillies 4
garlic 1 clove big or 2 small
ginger 1" piece
garam masala 1/4 tsp
cilantro 1tbsp
vinegar 1 tbsp
cashewnuts 1/4 cup /2tbsp
egg 1/2 of one
salt to taste
bread crumbs 1/2 cup or less
oil for deep frying 



Method
  • In a blender,grind the chicken,onion,green chillies,garlic cloves,ginger,garam masala, salt, cilantro, vinegar and cashew nuts to a smooth paste.(If you have a few cashews bits here and there,its fine as it adds a nice crunch)
  • Add half of one egg and mix well.Add bread crumbs as required to get the correct consistency to shape them.
  • Heat oil in a pan (upto 2" deep) and using your fingers scoop out little of the mix,shape in cylinder shapes and drop in the hot oil.
  • Turn and fry all sides evenly until it gets browned like cutlets.Drain on paper towels and serve hot with ketchup or just like that !!!



NOTES
* Use boneless chicken thighs with a little fat for more flavors else it may shrink when cooked.
* Add bread crumbs as required to get the batter right.
* You can make the minced part and freeze.Thaw before frying.I tried this but chicken leaves out slight amount of water,so becomes slightly watery than the fresh prepared mince.
