Chicken eggs

Chicken eggs are added to the minced meat to hold the minced meat together and prevent it from falling apart during the frying process.

2. Milk

Milk for making cutlets

It is added to the bread when cooking meatballs. Usually, the bread is soaked in milk and added to the meat. It is believed that milk adds tenderness to the dish. But this is not the case; minced meat with this bread makes it tough and the cutlets lose their juiciness during cooking.
