Chicken Keema Cutlet (Minced Chicken Cutlet)

We make this Chicken Keema Cutlet quite often on weekends or when some friends or guests come over for dinner on short notice. This is a very quick and easy recipe and can be prepared in one hour. This cutlet is very tasty, crispy outside and soft juicy minced chicken inside. Goodness about this recipe is you can make these cutlets very easily. All you need chopped onion, garlic, ginger and some garam masala powder and you are done! I also make ‘Chicken Cutlet’ with boneless chicken fillets too. That I’ll definitely share later. Till then enjoy Chicken Keema Cutlet!
