Hi, this dish brings back a lot of memories for me! As kids, we used to love chicken, mutton, and fish cutlets that my mother used to make, more than the veg cutlets. Now most of us have turned veggies:D Really yummy looking cutlets you have made!

This was my first visit to your site and want to say a big thanks. The recipe for the chicken cutlet looks really easy but was wondering if I could use semolina instead of breadcrumbs....since I don't have any at home.

Thanks again and am looking forward to trying some of the other recipes too. Cheers.

shanthini : Welcome to my blog :) if you don;t have breadcrumbs ...just fry dipped in egg is fine. Semolina will give crunchiness ..try it and see.
