Much as my kids like most Indian breakfast dishes, there are a few they will just not eat! Batata Poha is one such dish. Yesterday was thinking about what I could make for them and stumbled upon this idea of Poha Cutlets! There also happened to be recipes for this on the internet, but I ended up doing it my way and the kids enjoyed it. 🙂

This is what you’ll need

Thin poha: 3 cups

Potatoes: 3 (boiled and mashed)

Green chillies: 3

Bread slices: 2 (soaked and squeezed dry)

Roasted cumin powder: 1tsp

Turmeric powder: 1/2tsp

Grated ginger: 1/2tsp

Amchur: 1/2tsp

Coriander leaves: 3tsp (chopped)

Salt to taste

Oil for shallow frying

Let’s get cooking

1. Soak the poha in just enough water to make it soft.

2. Add all the rest of the ingredients to the poha and mix well to form a dough.

3. Shape into balls, flatten and shallow fry in hot oil until nicely brown on both sides. Drain on a kitchen towel.

4. Serve hot with ketchup or any chutney of your choice.

Approximate preparation and cooking time: 45 minutes

Serves: 4
