Poha Cutlets (Flattened Rice Potato Crispy Cutlets)

Poha Cutlets sounds something different, right?  They tastes as delicious as aloo tikki, but are more crispy and crunchy then tikki. It is a crunchy tea time snack, perfect as a starter also. This dish gives twist to your aloo tikki. When you are not in mood of having poha, go for this recipe.

These cutlets can be cooked in both ways deep as well as shallow frying. When deep-frying, coat it with breadcrumb for binding. I tried shallow fried way of cooking, and coated my cutlets with sooji/rava/semolina. Pair hot cutlets with ketchup or  green chutney or any other chutney of your choice. 🙂
