  • 2 cup Cooked poha
  • 2 cup potatoes boiled, peeled & mashed
  • 3 tbsp onion finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp carrot grated
  • 1 tbsp capsicum finely chopped
  • 1 green chilies finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp coriander leaves finely chopped
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/2 tsp red chili powder
  • 1 tbsp coriander powder
  • 1 tbsp chat masala
  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour (maida)
  • 3-4 tbsp oil


  • Collect all the required ingredients.
  • Take a mixing bowl, add cooked poha, boiled and mashed potatoes, all the veggies (carrot, capsicum, and onion).
  • Then add green chili, coriander leaves, salt, red chili powder, coriander powder, and chat masala.
  • Now add maida.
  • Mix it thoroughly with the help of a spoon.
  • After mixing with a spoon, use hands and combine well making sure a dough is formed.
  • Grease your hands and take a generous portion of the mixture and bind it well.
  • Shape each into a cutlet or give the desired shape of your choice.
  • Prepare the rest of the cutlets in the same way from the entire mixture.
  • Deep fry or shallow fry the cutlets. To shallow fry pour 2-3 tbsp oil in a frying pan or tawa to heat it up on medium flame(use of non-stick pan and tawa is preferable).
  • After the oil is heated, put as many cutlets as possible in the pan. Keep them so that they get roasted well.  If you feel the oil is less, pour more oil on the cutlets.
  • When one side is lightly golden and crisp, turn them over.
  • Turn them again when the second side is lightly golden and crisp.
  • Once they become crispy and brown, place the pan fried poha cutlets on kitchen paper towels.
  • Crispy and tasty poha cutlets are ready.  Serve with green coriander chutney or sweet chutney.



  • Add vegetables of your choice like peas, corn, and beans.
  • Adding grated cheese to the stuffing makes cheesy poha cutlet tastier.
  • The onions will also brown and that's the indication that the cutlet has cooked. Do fry them on medium flame.
  • Make sure fry the cutlet on medium flame, else the cutlet will not get cooked from inside.
  • If using green peas, then cook potato and peas together.
  • Potatoes should be well boiled so that the thick pieces of potato while shaping the cutlets will not remain.
  • Vegetables should be finely chopped, so that there will be no thick pieces ofveggies while making cutlets.
