Chicken Tikka Croquettes Recipe: How To Make Chicken Tikka Croquettes
To begin with, we need to cut the boneless chicken pieces into chunks. Transfer them to a bowl and add ginger-garlic paste, lemon juice, and salt to marinate them well. Keep it aside. In a separate bowl, add mustard oil, red chilli powder, ginger-garlic paste, yogurt, lemon juice, and kasuri methi. Now, add the marinated chicken to this mixture. Mix well. Transfer to an oven and bake for around 15 to 20 minutes at 180 degrees C. Once done, further chop the chicken and mix it with mashed potatoes, coriander leaves, mozzarella cheese, kasuri methi, and red chilli powder. Make small balls of this mixture, dip them in a slurry made of maida and eggs, and coat them in breadcrumbs. Heat some oil in a kadhai and deep-fry the croquettes until they turn golden brown and crispy. Serve hot with some dip and enjoy!
