The term cutlet gives one the idea of a crispy-on-the-outside, chewy-on-the-inside snack that is mildly spicy and goes best with ketchup or sauces. Here we give a different version - a sweet cutlet. This yummy snack is made of flattened rice or aval, plantain and egg. This easy recipe would be perfect to be tried as an afterschool snack for your kids.
