Chatu Bara (Mushroom Cutlet)

This weekend we brought a very big packet of Mushrooms as we were planning a barbeque in the garden with a lovely sunny weather. But busy with other chores could not have a barbeque. So thought of preparing some chatu bara.Mushroom in odia is known as chatu and bara is a term used for vada in south india.

Chatu Bara is a delicious snack or appetizer and can also be served as a side dish with rice.


1 packet of mushrooms
1 medium sized onion
Oil for shallow frying
4 tbsp Chana Dal
4 tbsp Rice
3 Redchillies
1 tbsp Zeera(cumin seeds)
Salt to taste

Soak Chana Dal and Rice for 4-5 hours. Make a paste of chana dal, rice, redchillies, zeera, salt.
Add chopped onion and chopped mushrooms to it. Shallow fry the batter into cutlets in medium flame .
