Leftover Upma Cutlet

On some days, I will be left out with more breakfast. How much ever we try to finish it off little bit will be remaining. Like this upma was left out as I made a lot and we are not big  fans of upma ;-). So instead of wasting the left over upma, I wanted to try something different and thought of making a snack out of it, so that my little one can munch them.

Before this I never saw or tasted a cutlet with upma. But when I searched around, I stumbled upon these pretty looking cutlets from Shanthi’s blog 7aum suvai. I tried these cutlets and they were extremely tasty and a perfect evening snack. I didn’t add vegetables while preparing upma, I added them while preparing cutlets and shallow fried these using very little oil. A yummy and tasty snack was ready within minutes.

If anyone gets bored of eating leftover upma or feel guilty about wasting it, they you can try this and enjoy :-)


  1. Leftover Upma- 1 cup
  2. Carrot (diced)- 1 no
  3. Beans (chopped)- 4 nos
  4. Corn flour- 1/4 cup
  5. Bread crumbs- 1/4 cup
  6. Salt- as per taste
  1. Boil the carrot and beans with little salt and add to the left over upma and mix well. ( if you add vegetables while making the upma, then skip this step).
  2. Make small balls out of the upma and flat it on your palm. Keep this aside.
  3. Mix corn flour with little water and keep this batter aside. In another bowl take bread crumbs.
  4. Dip the above shaped upma first in the corn flour batter and then in the breadcrumbs and shallow fry them till it becomes golden brown on both the sides.
