They look like cutlets but not,These are deep fried cornflakes and poha fritters mixed with onions ,garlic and few others.No need to grind anything,can be done within minutes as a quick snack/breakfast recipe,specially during winter season with hot cup of tea.An adapted recipe by Hari Chandana,only variation I made is I added cornflakes to this which gives a crunchy deep fried taste.
Cornflakes 3/4 Cup
Poha/Beaten Rice 1 1/2 Cup( I used thin poha)
Chopped Onion 1
Green Chilli 2 to 3
Rice Flour 2 Tbsps
Gram Flour 1 Tbsp
Cumin seeds 1/4 Tsp
A bunch of Chopped Cilantro
Minced ginger and garlic 1/2 Tsp
Turmeric powder 1/4 Tsp
Salt to taste
Oil to deep fry
1. Pulse the cornflakes in a grinder for few sec without adding water.Soak the poha
in water for just for 10 mins,remove excess water.
2. In a mixing bowl add all above listed ingredients including cornflakes and soaked poha without adding water.
3. Make flat size balls just like cutlets and pat them gently with your hands.
4. Heat oil and deep fry them.As usual,can be served with tamarind sauce,green
chutney,tomato chillie sauce etc.
