Welcome to the world of simple and easy recipes...

We, the ‘aakrantham crew’ extend our special greetings to the beginners in cooking, the novice Bachelors, suffering husbands for being the guinea pig of wife’s culinary experimentations and the most sophisticated cooking experts who, out of their intricate and above-average try-outs have forgotten their beginning point in cooking. Yes! Our aim is to show the simplified paths of cooking, to depict the formulae for day-to-day needs to kill the hunger, to help out someone who is completely new to kitchen and those whose breaths stop hearing the name of dishes with words like ‘forelle’, ‘pecam’, ‘oreo’, ‘agua’ e.t.c in it.

Chicken Cutlet

I felt extremely happy last week to receive a call from an old blogger friend of mine. She just called into say that she is actively following and referring my Aakrantham and trying out dishes from this. With a little hesitation, she asked me whether I can publish few of her recipes too in my blog. Though my joy knew no bounds when I heard this question, with a little show-off, I told her “aah..!! lemme see, anyhow you send me a recipe. After reviewing, I’ll let you know”. Within an hour an e-mail with subject line ‘Chicken cutlet’ popped up in my gmail window, which read as below:


  • Boneless chicken – 250 gm
  • Cooking oil – for frying
  • Onion - 2
  • Garlic (cut into small pieces) - 2        
  • Green chilli (finaly diced) - 1        

  • Mint, coriander & curry leaves (chopped) – 1 Tbspoon 

  • Ginger (cut into small piece) – ½ teaspoon
  • Chicken Masala - 2½ Tbspoon
  • Chilli powder – ½ teaspoon
  • Turmeric Powder – ¾ teaspoon
  • Potato – 1 Big
  • Bread crumbs – as needed to cover
  • Egg – 1 or 2
  • Salt - to taste
How to:
 1.       Boil the washed chicken pieces with 1 Tb spoon of chicken masala and salt with a half cup of water till chicken is properly cooked. Drain the water if any, and mince the chicken.
2.       Peeled potato should be cut into small pieces. Pressure-cook this potato along with ½ tea spoon turmeric powder, salt and one cup of water. Mash these cooked potatoes well using a spoon and keep it aside.
3.       Heat 2 Tb spoon oil in a frying pan, add onion, green chilli, mint, coriander and curry leaves, ginger and garlic and fry until soft. Add chicken masala, chilli powder, ¼ tea spoon turmeric powder and salt and mix well. Fry for few minutes.  Add the minced chicken (as in step 1) and mashed potato (as in step2) and stir until mixed well.
4.       Take 2 Tb spoons of bread crumbs in a plate. Break egg and take the white part alone into another plate.  Make small balls out of the mixture made in Step 3. Dip this ball in egg white and then roll it in the plate of bread crumbs till it is fully covered. Shape the ball into a perfect round/heart as needed.
5.       Pour oil into a flat frying pan. To the heating oil, place the cutlets as made in step 4. Carefully fry both sides of the cutlet till it turns brown. Serve hot with tomato ketchup.
