Beaten Rice And Potato Cutlets


Hi everyone. This is one of my ‘ideas come alive‘ dish, cutlets made of beaten rice and potatoes having a funky marination and coated in gram flour. This is a tasty and a very new idea which I had some time back and I decided to share it with all of you. It can also be microwaved and the use of oil can be totally omitted. It combines crunch, taste, and class in itself and in here we see a modern usage of beaten rice apart from it being used traditionally in making pohas or eaten with curd. So let’s start to make our Beaten Rice And Potato Cutlets.


  1. Beaten Rice or Poha – 250 gms.
  2. Potato – 2.
  3. Gram Flour or Besan – 100 gms.
  4. Onion – 1.
  5. Green Chillies – 3.
  6. Salt – According to taste.
  7. Red Chilly Powder – 1 tsp.
  8. Garam Masala – 1 tsp.
  9. Ginger – A small piece.
  10. Water – As needed.
  11. Vegetable Oil – For shallow frying.
  12. Coriander Leaves – A small bunch.


Step 1

 Wash and drain the water from the poha. Boil the potatoes. Chop the onions, green chilies and coriander leaves finely. Grate the ginger.

Step 2

In a mixer grinder add the poha and boiled potatoes and grind them slightly coarsely.

Now take a bowl and add the ground batter, the finely chopped onions, green chilies, coriander, grated ginger, gram flour, salt, red chilly powder, garam masala and mix everything well to make a dough. If the stuff of the dough is stiffer add a little bit of water but it depends on the consistency of the dough. You can also add panir in it. Make small cutlets of any shape you want from it.

Step 4 

Heat oil in a frying pan. Drop in the above-made cutlets in the pan and shallow fry them till lightly browned and crisp. Take them out and drain on tissue paper.

Our Beaten Rice or Poha Cutlets are ready. Serve them as a morning or evening snack with any dip of your choice.

  1. I love this ! This is mostly our evening snack option in case there is leftover poha of breakfast & some extra boiled potatoes lying in the refrigerator. When combined, it makes a tasty snack. Nicely done Abha.
