Homemade Fish Cutlet/Croquette

While we were growing up (and even now), my parents were always against junk (fast) food. They firmly believed, rightfully so, in the importance of having tasty, healthy, home-cooked food. My mom was a stay-at-home mom, and she used to cook all these great snacks that we gorged on after coming back from school in the evening. These fish cutlets were one such home-made snack that we looked forward to. Made fresh with fish, potatoes, spices, and filling up the kitchen with the delicious smell of fried breadcrumbs, this is definitely one of the chart toppers if I have to pick my favourites.

Coriander Fried Chicken

This is not a typical batter fried chicken. This is not a typical Indian chicken fry either! Enough of all the negativity. It takes less than 45 minutes from reading this recipe to serving some great food – try this recipe, and cook some amazing fried chicken. Crispy on the outside, tender and juicy inside – this fried chicken ticks all the boxes! By the way, the name comes from the coriander powder used in the marinade.
