When it comes to chicken, I like them all! Curry it, roast it, fry it, or biryani it, I love them all! ‘biryani it’, is that even a word. Who cares, when there is chicken, I don’t care about anything else.
Lay down a table with full meat on it, and I am sure I will go pick chicken first. And if at all I like what I see, I would do sea food as well. My son is totally a chicken person just like me! And I am not complaining at all.
By now, you guys know that I keep away from 2 things. 1 – deep fried food and 2 – sweets/desserts. The reason I shy away from deep fried food is not calories in the first place. No, really. I stay away from deep fried food, mostly, because I don’t feel good after eating it. Like my tummy start feeling weird and I never get any satisfaction after eating deep fried food.
And desserts – I keep away from it, just simply because I don’t have a sweet tooth, period. I know most of you would have your jaw dropped to the floor reading this. I really mean it though.
Now don’t call me ‘lucky you’. You must be thinking I am all slim and fit! 🙁 Unfortunately no, I have few kilos to loose in spite of not taking “much” deep fried food and sugar! :'(
If you are a person who shy away from deep fried food, this pan fried chicken cutlet is just perfect for you. Without compromising on the taste this starter is perfect on a grey day with some hot chai. Or serve it as a side dish with your regular meal. Without deep frying you still get the perfect crunch on the cutlet by using panko bread crumbs.
