Well, I would like to end this month of MAY with a delicious snack prepared in a jiffy. And that is poha cutlet. Sounds something elaborate cooking. But it isn’t actually. Did I say I made them in a jiffy? Because I wanted to eat kind of soft and crispy snack in the evening. But I usually don’t do blog cooking in the evening which involves lot of photo shooting. And I fall short of enough natural light. So all cooking happens in the morning when the SUN is bright, illuminating with defused light. This poha cutlet was all apt for my intentions as dough can be made in the morning and deep frying can happen just before snacking.
This recipe is quick, easy and simple that you really need 30-40 minutes. It can be surprisingly quick if you already have some cooked potatoes in the refrigerator. (Let me be honest, I had them!) Rinsed rice flakes, potato and rice flour makes a stiff, perfect dough for cutlet. You can add all the good spices of your pantry that brings in deliciousness like it can be chilly powder, garam masala, pepper stuff like that.
The final coating over the cutlet can be with breadcrumbs or roasted rava. I have used both in this recipe to show you how exactly they look. I personally liked the rava coated poha cutlets because they had crispy exterior. The texture and crunch in these cutlets is truly amazing. Just try yourself once to relish in the evening with tea/coffee . Let your dear ones appreciate you for such delectable snack. What say?
