Chicken Pakoda / Chicken fritter’s (Very Easy and Quick)

This blog was set to collect my family recipes or the food we would like to eat from recipes shared by friends, neighbor’s etc...when I told the same to my mom, she was like are you sure, and gave me the best advise ever start with things simple and easy, once u get a hang of it, u can go to recipes which need lot more preparation. Good advice

It was raining the past few days...reminded me of my day back at home when mom made different pakoda's...was in the mood to eat chicken pakoda..Mind u mom and grandma(maternal) made many varieties...This is one of the most easiest and yet very flavorful, very good for entertaining too as you will have a dish made in a jiffy and I am sure people will ask you for the recipe.

Ground Chicken                  - 1lbs aprox 500gm or 1/2 kg
Cilantro/Coriander/Kothmir - a nice packed bunch to fit in palm
Mint/Pudina leaves              - 30 to 40 big leaves
Onion                                 - 1-2 medium chopped finely
Garam Masala                    - 1/2 tsp
Egg                                    - 1 (the yolk and white)
Green chilis                        - 8-10(or according to ur heat level)
Ginger                                - 1-2 inches
Garlic                                 - 4-6 pods (Big pods)
Lime juice                          - 3 tsp(optional)
Salt to taste
One table spoon of either Rice flour/Besan/ground Roasted channa dal(putnaal papu ground)
or if you have corn flour then 1 tsp(which ever you have on hand)
Oil for frying

Grind/Pulse Cilantro/Coriander/Kothmir, Mint/Pudina leaves, Green chillis, Ginger, Garlic do not use and water
Wash and dry the chicken on a paper towel to remove the excess water
Now mix/combine all the ingredients
Refrigerate for half an hour or if u can’t wait start frying in the oil

Serve it hot with your favorite sauce or you can just have it as is

You can make Seekh Kabaab's or burger's out of this recipe or make Kofta curry :)
When ur entertaining make this the previous day and fry it the next day
