Chicken cutlet

One of the most liked snacks in the holy month of ramadan. Deep fry it or shallow fry , its just delicious. I have used fresh boneless chicken here and cooked, then shredded and prepared cutlet. I usually prepare cutlets if any chicken is leftover from curry or starters.

Couple of days before ramadan, I prepare these cutlets uncooked beforehand and freeze it. I have shared Chicken fingers recipe, which can be freezed too. Will update with many more such freezable recipes.
