Farali Makhana Cutlet

It happens to us a lot of time that whilst fasting period we run of options to cook. And then end up cooking the same over and over again and it makes the feast less exciting. The reason is being less awareness about ingredients. The key is to mix and match the ingredients.

The recipe I have today id a child of my experiments and trust me it is WOAH! Farali Makhana Recipe is what randomly struck me while brainstorming recipe ideas. And here I am sharing the recipe with you guys. These drool-worthy cutlets are to dry for, amazingly crispy and gooeyness from the mashed potatoes just soothes your hunger.

Makhana is well known for its health benefits. It is low in calories, is richness in fiber, and a good source of potassium, phosphorus, iron, and zinc too. Do you know what this means? That when you make and consume these cutlets you are somewhat guilt free.
