Aval or Poha or beaten rice cutlet

A good alternative to potato cutlets which is mostly found in everybody's house. I had this for the first time in my sil's house when i fell in love with it. Tried it with a few variations and fell deeper in love with it :) I know this one tastes far more different than the one i initially tasted but it all just keeps changing to suit styles

It has veggies in it and a decent spice level to suit everybody's style. It tastes great pan fried or deep fried so the choice is ours

Serves... 4 ppl 
Serve option... With ketchup or hot sauce
This is what u'll need....

Aval or beaten rice 1 cup
Carrot 1 small
Cooked peas 1/4 cup
Onion 1 small
Gg paste
Green chillies 2
Red chilli powder 1 tspn
Garam masala powder 1/2 tspn
Salt to taste

Here is the stir....
  • Soak aval in little water for 5 mins
  • Meanwhile heat oil in a pan and add finely chopped onions to it. Once translucent add gg paste and fry till it loses its raw smell
  • Toss in carrot, peas, finely chopped green chillies, red chilli powder, garam masala powder and fry for a few minutes. Turn off the heat
  • Squeeze out excess water from aval and add the aval into the above mixture.  Add salt to taste and mix everything together to make a lumpy dough
