30 Mintues Kerala Style Chicken Cutlet

Chicken Cutlet is a popular evening snack or appetizer recipe in India. Kerala style Chicken cutlet is bit different from what I have had in Kolkata. The secret ingredient is the use of Curry leaves and some chopped vegetables, which give a unique flavor to this recipe. For a better taste always use fresh chicken than packaged ones.
