My boiboi loves cutlets be it just like that or cooked in tomato sauce or a simple oyster sauce. I remember how my brothers love it when our mom made them. We would polish them up saving the cutlets to be savoured last after finishing our rice drizzled with the sauce.
Making them is pretty simple, just need to mix 150g minced chicken meat and about 100g roughly chopped prawns. Add in some chopped onions and carrots for flavouring and crunch. Other times, I would add in water chestnut. Next, pour in about 1 1/2 tbsp soy sauce, 2 tsp cornflour and pepper. You may mix in one beaten egg to bind but I didn't this round since chopped prawns would be quite sticky enough for that purpose.
Shape the mixture using a spoon and shallow fry them till golden brown.
Place the fried cutlets on paper towels to absorb some of the oil and set aside. You may now serve the cutlets just like this with tomato sauce or chilli sauce.
Otherwise, to cook them in sweet and sour manner, heat some oil and stir in onions. Fry till translucent before pouring in some water and adding quartered tomatoes. Add in tomato paste to taste and season with salt and pepper. Balance it with some sugar. Put in the cutlet and let it simmer for about 5 mins. Remove and serve.
