With great pleasure i bring you a recipe from a friend Pooja Mansukhani. She has taken time out to type the recipe of her healthy chicken cutlets with the picture. I simply love it when i am sent recipes and pics by all of you. I have not tried out this recipe, but it seems delicious. Healthy, low calorie and complete.
500 grams of mixed vegetables such as carrots, onions, leeks, capsicum, brocolli, mushrooms etc.
500 grams of chicken breast
salt and pepper to taste
1 teaspoon each of cumin powder, coriander powder, garam masala and tandoori masala
1 tablespoon of ginger garlic paste
1/4 cup of finely chopped coriander leaves or parsley
green chillies to taste, finely chopped
2 eggs, optional
In a food processor (the BULLET would do perfectly fine) chop all the vegetables of your choice. These are just a suggestion, you can add what you like. Keep the veggies in a bowl. In the same processor add the chicken breast and mince it (alternatively you can buy fine chicken mince and use that ). Mix the chicken with the vegetables and then add all the seasoning to your choice. This is a good recipe as you can season it to your choice and each time use different seasonings. I will give you alternatives at the end of the recipe as a tip. Mix everything well and add the eggs if you want to. If the chicken mince is fine you will not need to add the eggs. Marinate it for a few hours. Make balls out of the mixture and flatten it. Heat a non stick pan (the ceramic pans work well) and spray it with oil spray or brush it with olive oil and then place the cutlets in it and grill on both sides till golden brown and done. Serve with a salad or fried rice.
NITU DIDI TIP FOR DIFFERENT FLAVOURINGS:
You can make this chinese style by adding a bit of chinese rice wine, vinegar, soya sauce , white pepper , and sesame oil. Marinate and then grill it.
You can make this real spicy by adding some nice different chilli sauces to it in the marinade.
If the mixture is too soggy you can add some grated bread to this or some cornstarch.
You can also shape this into meat balls and brown them and add them in any gravy. The options are endless. You can shape this into kababs and fill pita bread with it adding hummus and salad to it… Chop it into pieces , add mayonnaise and here you have an amazing sandwich filling
