Poha Cutlet is definitely an addictive and tempting tea time snack. I normally get requests for making it whenever it rains with a sip of hot Ginger tea. They are crispy and good in filling up your stomach. We make them with a mixture of Potato and Poha also known as Chiwda or Beaten Rice.

        Thanks a lot Prerna for such lovely words of appreciation.
        I will try my best to add some Rice recipes as well soon..

        I am not able to make out in which recipe you are using active yeast..please write again with the recipe name..
        Poha cutlet recipe does not require any yeast.

        As far as bread recipes are concerned i have used ACTIVE DRY YEAST only.
        I will be more than happy to help, please write again with the recipe name.
        Thank you
