Chicken Cutlets Parsi Style

By 7 comments

So many people wanted me to make chicken cutlets and mail them within USA. However meats can spoil easily, we do not want to take the risk.

1 lb ground chicken mince

4 Cups boiled and mashed potatoes

1/2 cup fresh, washed, finely chopped coriander leaves

Did the breaded cutlets into egg and immediately put in the pan to fry

Make sure the cutlets have space between them for best results

Spoon hot oil on top, and then check for color.

Fry golden brown on one side, flip and repeat.

To make the Cutlets Lacy, dip last in egg and be generous with the egg. Spoon more egg froth on top at last moment to make the frills.

Hello Rita your video No 1 on chicken pattice is not centered properly so we can actually see you through the whole process. All the time the bowl is just seen but can’t see you actually making the balls and dipping them in bread crumbs.
Video 2 frying the pattice is OK.

Hello Ketty, thanks for watching the videos. I know the first video is not so good. I was doing the video by myself and it is difficult holding the camera with one hand and mixing the chicken cutlet with the other hand. Need an assistant. Better next time around.

Thanks Sandhya. These cutlets are easy to make and make good leftovers. Have them cold the next day for lunch between 2 slices of bread.
