  • 1 tsp Red Chili Powder

How to make Rice Cutlets

  1. In a food processor add all the above ingredients except oil and blend to a coarse mixture like that of bread crumbs.
  2. Check the consistency of the batter as it should be able to hold the shape of cutlet. Sometimes due to quality of rice you may need to use more cornstarch and besan if the cutlets are too moist.
  3. Once this rice batter is ready, shape them into cutlets or small balls and deep fry on medium flame.
  4. Do not overcrowd the pan. Fry till they turn golden brown from both sides.
  5. Once the cutlets are golden brown and crisp, take them out on an absorbent paper to drain the excess oil.
  6. Rice cutlets are ready.
  7. Serve hot with ketchup or chutney of your choice.
