Poha Cutlets (Flattened rice cutlet) is easy to make and very delicious. It can be made with ingredients easily available at home.
I love making cutlets for an after school snack or as a side dish, as it is much healthier than deep-fried snacks.


Both my daughters are participating in the annual function at their school and they practice for hours together and want some heavy snack after coming back from school.

Hence I tried this experiment. I prepared poha cutlets. In these poha cutlets, I added raisins, roasted peanuts, cashew giving altogether a different crispy and crunchy texture in the mouth.

I found my daughters and others relishing it. Today let us learn how to make Poha Vegetable cutlets following this easy recipe with step wise pictures.
