A simple croquette/cutlet recipe that again retains the age-old concept of Indian cutlets but gives it a slight twist by using flatten rice that renders a spongy and chewy texture.

2. Add in the chopped onion, beetroot, carrot, capsicum along with the hing.

3. Season the mixture with salt, pepper and red chilli powder and toss.

4. Add in the grated boiled potatoes along with the poha and chopped coriander and mix.

5. Take it off the heat and add in the grated cheese.

6. In a separate plate, make a mixture of sooji and poppy seeds.

8. Serve with a choice of dip.
