Method – How to Make Chicken Parcels

Step 1: Prepare the Chicken Stuffing

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the shredded chicken, black pepper powder, chili flakes, salt, green chilies, green coriander, and onion. Mix well.
  2. Add the mayonnaise to the mixture and mix thoroughly. Your stuffing is ready.

Step 2: Prepare the Bread Slices

Step 3: Make the Slurry

Step 4: Assemble the Parcels

  2. Place a second bread slice on top of the stuffing and press gently with your hands to ensure they stick together.
  3. Repeat this process to make the remaining parcels.

Step 5: Fry the Parcels

  1. Heat oil in a pan over medium heat.
  2. Dip each stuffed bread parcel into the slurry, ensuring it is well-coated.
