Monsoons are in full swing in some parts of the world. It rains every other day in this part of the world. Rains are associated with piping hot tea /coffeee and some delicious fried /non fried dishes to devour and enjoy the downpour.To treat my family on this rainy day i made these insanely delicious Poha & Mixed Vegetable Cutlet ie Falttened Rice and Mix vegetable fritters.You can deep fry or shallow fry as per your choice. I deep fried them as made it after a very long time.
I have many fond memories of this wet season. During my childhood we were always excited to wear raincoats and gumboots to school. Walking with water filled gumboots was so much fun. We enjoyed every moment .As we grew older i am a little skeptical to get drenched in the rain, instead i prefer to stay home and enjoy the weather with hot Masala chai , some munchies and binge watching. Our preferences change as we get older. There are times when i like to go on a drive when there is slight drizzle and enjoy the greenary on long drive. This week for 249th #Foodiemonday #Bloghop theme #MonsoonMunchies was suggested by Archana who is an amazing blogger. Do check her space for all the amazing recipes. I love her recipes.Bookmarked Upminsinkai Aralittu and Watali Dal.

  1. True Preethi as we grow older we do like to sit back and binge with tea. These cutlets with mixed vegetables and poha sound truly delicious and apt for this season.

  2. We love poha cutlets and they make up for a lipsmacking treat on a rainy day for sure. I liked that you have added baby corn to the cutlets. Your pics are tempting me to make a batch soon.

  3. First loved the pictures Preethi. Cutlets looks so tempting. Loved these perfectly made soft inside and crisp outside cutlets. Adding corn definitely made these more delicious.

  4. Such a crunchy and delicious snack. Poha and Mix Veg cutlets look so crispy and crunchy on the outside. Like how you’ve used poha, that’s interesting. I’ll try my next cutlet recipe with poha as I’m sure it helps in binding the ingredients. A wonderful rainy day shot… I too as I’m getting older prefer to stay indoors than get drenched in the rain.

  5. The cutlets look crispy, perfectly made and delicious! Just right for the monsoons. 🙂

    I love the use of raw banana here, and flattened rice or poha. I don’t think I have ever used poha in a cutlet before. Would love to try it out.

  6. बहुत बढ़िया Ma’aM। आज हम भी देखते हैं poha बना के जैसे आप ने इस आर्टिकल में बताया है। वैसे हम लोग बहुत ज्यादा bnate हैं पर जैसे अपने बताया है वैसे हमने आज तक कभी नहीं बनाया ma’am। thank you so much
