Poha Tikki

Poha Tikki (Flattened Rice Tikki)  

Here comes a Sunday. Week long wait is over. Time to delight yourself. Day to pamper yourself. Everyday we are focussed on eating healthy oil free food. But on a Sunday, we can relent a bit and let our taste-buds enjoy little.

So what to prepare today. I thought. Again thought. Sandwiches, paranthas, poories, dosa, idli, poha etc. Tough question to answer. But I want something that can be a brunch. Heavy also filling also and of course give a feeling of Sunday to break free our soul from all guilt.

Hence I tried this experiment. I prepared poha cutlets. In these poha cutlets I added raisins, roasted peanuts, cashew giving all together a different crispy and crunchy texture in mouth. Raisins are giving mild sweet taste with mix of nuts pampering your taste buds will create mild soothing taste and mind will relish the ingenuity.

I found my daughter and others relishing it. Do try and surprise your family with this innovation and do share your feedback.
