Beetroot cutlet

Beetroot is a bit difficult vegetable for me. I tried doing usili , sambhar and poriyal recipes with this. But nothing satisfied my taste buds. As a result, few beet roots were sleeping in my fridge for more than 2 weeks. Finally my hubby gave this idea and it worked out well. Now-a-days i am not afraid of buying this vegetable.
This dish recipe can be kept in fridge for about 2 days. In that case, heat for 30 sec in microwave before serving.

-to cook

1. Betroot - 3 nos - peal the skin and grate using a grater thru thin slots.
2. Carrot - 1 no - similar to beet peal the skin and grate
3. Frozen peas - 1/2 cup (washed)
4. Big brown onion - 1 (finely chopped)
5. Garlic - 2 cloves (grate similar to beetroot)
6. Ginger - 1 small piece (grate similar to beetroot)
7. Saunf / sombu - 1 tbs
8. Jeera / cumin seeds - 1 tbs
9. Garam masala - 2 tbs
10. Cilantro - 1/2 handful - finely chopped
11. Salt to taste
12. Cooking oil - 5 tbs

-to coat

Crumbled rusk - 3/4 cup if it is not available u can use Rava / Semolina - 3/4 cup
Heat a pan and roast the Rava in 1/2 tbs of ghee


1. Heat 3 tbs of oil in a pan and add jeera and saunf. Once it is splattered add chopped onion & cook till its transparent. Then add grated ginger and garlic. After 2 mins add garam masala and cilantro, cook this for 2 mins.
2. Add the grated beet, carrot + peas and mix well. The masala should blend with the vegetables. Add 1 cup of water and enough salt. Cook the mixture in medium flame till carrot and beetroot gets smashed. Stir the mixture consiously. The cooked vegetable comes like a dough. Remove from fire and allow it to cool.
3. Take the vegetable dough balls in ur palm and flatten it (like vada). Dip it in the rava or rusk powder. The particles should stick to all the sides of the cutlet.
4. Heat a pan and fry the cutlets by sprinkling oil drops. Flip the cutlet and fry so that the other side too gets cooked.Romove from pan serve hot with tomato / chili / tamarind sauces.
5. Arrange the excess cutlets in a box and keep it in fridge.
