Podi Rice Cutlets Recipe

Rice cutlets are a delightful and versatile snack that will leave your taste buds craving for more! These golden-brown beauties are made by combining cooked rice with a medley of vegetables, spices, and a touch of creativity.

To make rice cutlets, start by mixing cooked rice with mashed potatoes, finely chopped onions, bell peppers, and a burst of flavor from ginger-garlic paste. Add a dash of red chili powder, garam masala powder, cumin powder, and chaat masala to elevate the taste. Don't forget to sprinkle in some fresh coriander leaves for that extra burst of freshness.

Once the mixture is well-combined, shape it into round cutlets and coat them with bread crumbs. This coating gives the cutlets a crispy and crunchy texture when they are shallow-fried to perfection. Just like these delicious and healthy Beetroot Tikkis.
