Cutlets are the yummy popular spicy snack which has a crispy coating with softness inside. You can make different varieties of cutlets like chicken cutlets, beef cutlets, veg cutlet, potato cutlet, mutton cutlet, fish cutlet etc. Each cutlets are unique in taste and flavor. Moreover you can also make sweet cutlets with ripe plantains, dates and plantain, vermicelli etc. Few days back i have shared a banana cutlet recipe in my blog. You can also shape cutlets according to your preference. Some makes heart shaped cutlets while some make round flatten cutlets like so. Here i am going to share a chicken cutlet recipe without using egg. Egg is used in cutlets as a binding ingredient. So instead of egg i prefer using gram flour mixture which also act as a strong covering for cutlets. During Ramadan, people love to make different snacks recipes for iftar. Samosa and cutlets are considered as the most common snacks recipes for iftar. So here is the recipe showing how to make chicken cutlet recipe / egg less recipe / chicken snack/ spicy snacks / ramadan recipes for iftar.
