If there is ever an easy way to feed Beets to kids, this is it! Make it spicy or make them plain, but this crispy snack will get them intrigued and hooked. Honestly, I started with the intention of bringing some bright colors to the Cutlets, but the response from my kids was a welcome surprise.
Cutlets are one of my favorite Indian snacks and it is a fairly common street snack in India. Today’s recipe is a variation with Beets and supporting spices. As the temperatures start to cool down, this is a good time to start planning your menu for any of the festivities that are coming up in the next few months.
Tips for beets cutlet
Today’s recipe for Beets Cutlets can be had as a snack or as a vegan burger or even in your veggie wrap. The directions are very easy to follow once you gather all the ingredients. As you boil the potatoes and beets, there is one key step you should not miss.
That is to get all the excess water out of them before you mix in the spices. If it gets too watery, you will need more spices to perk up the taste and also more breadcrumbs to absorb the excess water.
Check out my short video where I show you how to prepare the cornstarch batter that helps in bringing the patties together. Gentle pan fry with very little olive oil is all it needs to get the crispy texture. The best way to serve Beets cutlets is with a side of tomato ketchup or Mint Chutney.
