Poha is the main ingredient of this recipe. I have added boiled potatoes to it for binding.

You can use any other vegetables like peas, carrots, cauliflower, onions, french beans etc. in this. In this recipe, I have used only potatoes as vegetables so we can say it aloo poha cutlet recipe.

I serve it hot with tomato ketchup and mint and coriander chutney.
