Aval cutlet recipe- Poha cutlets- Kids snack recipes

        Days are getting busier and stressful now and I do not even manage to check my mails nowadays. But today, I worked like crazy in the morning to finish all my chores. So I did find a few minutes to do a post while the kids are having a afternoon nap. I have to get even more organised and do something fruitful everyday before I realize that I have already wasted a lot of time doing just the routine activities.

       Evening snacks is not a routine at my place. It used to be till last year when my kiddo returned from school in the evening. But now he comes back in the noon and is happy to have some store bought cookies or eggs for his evening snack. But on saturday when he returns from his swimming lessons , he likes to have something. Its bhelpuri most of the time and he loves it. But last time, I made this cutlets. Everyone loved it.

  I have been making different kinds of cutlets nowadays and they are quite filling too. I was accidently delivered thin variety of poha by the indian stores which is unsuitable for making poha upma. So I decided to make cutlets with this as I have seen it in many sites. Different recipes were followed in different site. I kept my recipe very simple with minimum ingredients and avoiding too much spices as my kids wont like it. It was delicious and filling and liked by all.
