Baked Poha Cutles

Mostly on Fridays, I try to make Chat dishes. So One Friday, I wanted to make chole tikki. Made Chole and was wondering which tikkis I should go for it. I wanted to make poha cutlets for long but didn't wanted to shallow fry so I baked it, It was nice and crunchy and was perfect with my chat. Enjoyed it with spicy, tangy Ragda pattice and we all enjoyed it. you can shallow fry this too.

Ingredients :

3 potatoes boiled and mashed
1 cup washed and rinsed poha (flatten Rice Flakes)
1/2 tsp. each cumin seeds and mustard seeds
1 small onion finely chopped
1 tsp. red chili powder
1 green chili finely chopped
1/4 tsp. turmeric powder
salt to taste
lime juice to taste
2 tbsp. oil
2 tbsp. finely chopped coriander leaves


Boiled the potatoes and mash it in a bowl.
Wash and clean the poha in container and keep it aside.
Heat a small pan and add oil in it. Add mustard seeds when its popped, add cumin seeds, when it changes the color, add onion and cook till its pink.
Add red chili powder, green chili, turmeric powder and salt. Mix it nicely.
Take it away from flame and add that masala to potato mixture.
Add poha in it too. Add lime juice and coriander leaves and mix it nicely.
Preheat the oven at 400 F.
Make all your tikkis / cutlets as per your desired shape.
 spray the baking dish with oil and put the cutlets in it.

When done making it, bake it till nice and brown on both sides about 20 minutes or so.
Enjoy hot with chole or ragda pattice.
 I have fire in the down of the oven so I cooked it on low side to make it nice and crunchy but if you have broiler, do it that way.
