beetroot patties, beetroot tikkis, cutlet recipe
Today I am here with Beetroot Cutlet Recipe. I have prepared these cutlets long ago and they have been in my drafts for really long time. One after the other I was posting other recipes, so this post was waiting for its turn. Finally, today the day has come to publish this post. From today Easter holidays starts and kids are going to be at home for couple of weeks and I am not sure if I will get time for blogging. I may not completely ignore the blog, but definitely the time I spend for it will be less. This may affect the number of recipes I post here too. Let us see how the vacation goes.

 Anyways, coming to today's recipe- It is beetroot cutlet, spicy patties made with grated beetroot and mashed potatoes. These patties are perfect as finger food and can be served as snack / appetizer. These patties are great vegetarian option for preparing burger. Usually these beetroot cutlets are deep fried. But I pan fried it. We had this as snack while for the kids I served them with White bread rolls. They enjoyed it too.

  • If you do not prefer, you can skip onions.
