RAW BANANA AND POTATO CUTLETS

Raw Banana And Potato Cutlets are a good way to incorporate raw banana into our daily diet. The potatoes can be substituted with sweet potatoes to increase the health quotient. Well, raw bananas have their own benefits and apart from making vegetables this is a great way to consume them.

While making Cutlets, we need some binding agen like cornflour or breadcrumbs. Else, the Cutlets do not firm up enough while shallow frying. But the addition of flattened rice does the same trick and the Cutlets turn out firm from within with a lovely crisp exterior inspite of shallow frying and not deep frying them.
