What is Palak Poha Cutlet?

An absolutely crisp and crunchy cutlet with the bite of spinach leaves which adds a distinct flavour to the cutlets. Palak Poha Cutlet is easy, simple and healthy breakfast and snack recipe. I always used to make poha cutlets and loved them. However, the introduction of spinach took them to an absolutely different level.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Poha Spinach Cutlets Recipe

The main ingredients for Poha Spinach Cutlets Recipe are flattened rice i.e. poha, boiled potatoes and spinach. I was very skeptical about adding spinach to an already appetizing poha cutlet. But I was really happy with the results. Spinach added a very different flavour to the Homemade Poha Spinach Cutlets Recipe and not just flavour, on frying, the spinach leaves got crisp and crunchy giving a good bite to palak poha cutlet. Apart from that, some basic spices have been added. To keep this healthy Palak Poha Cutlet recipe low on calories, I have pan fried the cutlets in minimum oil, still, the result was super crunchy.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
