Very interesting and filling cutlets , made from leftover rice and veggies. Amazing way to finish leftover rice . Cutlets can be served as snacks or stuff it up with Sandwiches or Burgers ..

Rice cutlet is very unique in its own way. Rice and veggies together make it so filling and delicious. Cooked rice is mashed and then combined with veggies of own choice.

I have made this very tasty and beautiful looking Cutlet in IDHAYAM GROUNDNUT OIL. Using this traditional , unrefined ,natural and pure groundnut oil gives pleasure and satisfaction towards health of my family. Idhayam Mantra Groundnut Oil is a heart friendly oil too. The high smoking point of groundnut oil makes it ideal for deep frying.

Here, I want to share some important tips and suggestions..

  • Rice : For these cutlets, rice has to be cooked well and mashed well. If you find rice is hard, boil or microwave for few seconds ..
  • Potatoes : Potatoes should be cooked well without much of moisture. I personally feel , grated potato gives perfect texture to mixture.
  • Cutlet : Cutlet can be shaped in any shape.. little Semolina or bread crumbs can be added too , if cutlet has more moisture. If one don’t like Juicy and soft cutlet from inside, make thin/ flat shape to make it very crispy . Fry cutlet on medium to high flame .
