I have posted a Phool makhana chaat sometime back. After that i was thinking to make a makhanae ke kheer but some how it didn’t happen. I have seen the idea of using makhana seeds in cutlets, long back in a video. So decided to do make no onion no garlic cutlet using makhana seeds. It turned out quite well and a super hit at home. Generally the makhana seeds have an acquired taste, which my kids don’t prefer, but these cutlets were liked by everyone. Do give this a try and also check out my no onion no garlic Potato cutlet and complete collection of No onion no garlic recipes.

Notes

1. Add very little salt, as we are adding black salt. 2. You can replace green chili with red chili powder. 3. Chaat masala or garam masala can be added. 4. Ensure the dough is firm, else the makhana cutlet will disintegrate in oil.
