2 big potatoes
1 big onion
A cup of bread crumbs
Few cloves of garlic
A small piece of ginger
Garam masala to taste
2/3 pinch of turmeric powder
Chili powder to taste
Salt to taste
Boil the chicken and potatoes separately, stand it to cool down. While you are waiting for it to cool down, chop the onion and make a paste of ginger and garlic. Separate the egg white from the yolk.
Remove all the bones from the chicken and mash it giving a little effort so that no lump can be found. Likewise, peel the potatoes and mash it. Mix both the ingredients properly then add on the chopped onion, ginger garlic paste, garam masala, turmeric powder, chili powder and salt. When the ingredients are properly mixed, divide the mixture into small balls. Using both your palms, flatten the balls by slightly pressing on it.
Spread the breadcrumbs over a quarter plate. Take a flat bottom fry pan, brush it with oil and heat it in medium heat. Dip the flatten tikka into the egg white; remove it fast and place it over the breadcrumbs. Turn it over so that it is wholly covered with the breadcrumbs. Then place it over the pan and fry it till it gives a golden hue on the lower side. Flip it and fry the other part till it gives the same hue. Sprinkle oil in between if required.
Serve it hot. Garnishing depends on your likes as this goes well with anything.
