Chicken Cutlets / Chicken Tikkis / Chicken Cutlets Recipe

Chicken Cutlets Recipe
Cutlets are a deep fried patties that can be made with veggies, meat, fish, paneer, tofu, beans and more. I often make patties/tikkis with veggies and legumes for my kids snack. They love to eat tikkis more than other snacks and these tikkis/cutlets are one easiest way to feed veggies to my kids. This time for a change tried with chicken, unlike other chicken recipes, chicken cutlets are easy to make if you have cooked potatoes and chicken in hand. You can also use any left over chicken from curries, chicken fry. I used the pressure cooked chicken which i made Chicken dry Curry recipe. Since i spiced the chicken already, i did not add much spices to my chicken-potato mixture. If you are using just boiled chicken adjust spices to desired taste and spiciness. I referred vahchef's chicken cutlets video and tweaked it to my taste. Here you go.,

Homemade Garam Masala Recipe / Punjabi Garam Masala Recipe

Punjabi Garam Masala Recipe
Generally i do not make spice powders like Garam Masala Powder, Sambar Masala, Rasam Powder at home and rely on store bought ones since its easy and handy. But nothing can beat the freshness, flavor and taste of Homemade spice powders. I make paruppu podi and idli podi every week or once in 10 days but other spice powders are rarely. This Punjabi Garam Masala powder was prepared
by my neighbor aunt and I simply clicked the pictures and noted the measurements. Being a Punjabi, she prepares all the authentic punjabi dishes at home. I even asked her for Sarson Ka Saag recipe, the most traditional punjabi dish.

Chicken Dry Curry Recipe / Spicy Chicken Dry Curry

chicken dry curry
Chicken Dry Curry / Indian Style Dry chicken curry is a spicy and flavorful side dish to go with rice and rasam or even with phulka rotis. This dry chicken curry is prepared with freshly ground spices with simple and easy preparation.
As I am getting request to post more chicken & fish recipes from my readers, I wanted to try some new chicken recipes so that i can share for my readers. So, this time i tried this simple and spicy chicken dry curry recipe. Actually i started to try chettinad or Andhra style chicken dry curry. But most of the recipe calls for dry roast, grind and multiple preparation. So i tried it in my own way with simple recipe. Instead of roasting I ground the spices as such and used it for tadka. This way the chicken curry absorbed all the flavors from the ground spice mix and turned out so flavorful and spicy also. We had it for our lunch along with plain rice and rasam, a satisfying weekend meal!
