Poha (Beaten Rice) Cutlet / Tikki


          These poha (Beaten rice) cutlets are an ideal tea-time snack. They can also be served as appetizers along with some green chutney or ketchup. They are very easy to make and very delicious at the same time. For a healthier version I have used brown poha and brown bread. Finely chopped or grated veggies too can be added to make them more nutritious. Please check for a step by step method with pictures to prepare it.






         I have given a coating of sooji (semolina) but you may also use bread crumbs or they may simply be plain shallow fried without them. Both ways they simply tastes yummy. It is a perfect lunch box meal too, when rolled in roti along with some sliced onion and lettuce.



  • 1 1/2 cups poha (beaten rice) - I have used brown poha
  • 2 brown bread (crust removed)
  • 2 tbsp. fried onions
  • 1" ginger, grated
  • 2 green chilies
  • 2-3 tbsp. coriander leaves, chopped
  • 2 tbsp. fresh grated coconut
  • 2 tbsp. fried peanuts, coarsely ground
  • salt to taste
  • 1/4 tsp. turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp. garam masala powder
  • 1 tbsp. maida (plain flour)
  • 1 cup sooji / semolina
  • oil to deep fry






          Wash the poha for a few seconds and keep aside for 10 minutes to become soft. Soak the bread in water for a few seconds. Squeeze out the water and add to the drained poha.

           Mix the maida with some water to make a batter. Keep aside. To the poha - bread mix, add all the other ingredients(except maida, sooji & oil) and knead into a dough. 

          Make into desired shapes and transfer on to a plate. Dip them one by one in the batter and coat with the sooji. Arrange all on a plate.

          Heat oil in a pan / kadai and deep fry them on a medium flame few at a time for 2-3 minutes. Drain on a kitchen towel and serve with green chutney / ketchup / red chili sauce.
