Potato chop- Ramadan Specials #7

  
Potato chops, my dear friends is the cousin of cutlets. Where in cutlets you have the potatoes and chicken/beef/fish/veggies all combined, in these potato chops you have them separate. The potatoes are wrapped around the filling, breaded and deep fried. 

  
It sure is tasty, but yeah it tastes kinda like cutlets. Perfect if you are bored with the same method of preparing the usual cutlets. 

  
I loved this especially because cutlets have always been among my favourites, with every crispy bite so sinfully delicious and ever so satisfying. Serve these with a sweet and spicy sauce and enjoy. Hope you guys will like it.

      Regarding the weight of the chicken breast, one chicken breast would be approximately 90 grams/ 3 ounces.
