As promised, here is the recipe from Savi. She used to make these cutlets often and bring it to the office for us to try. I feel that not very many people like beetroot and this is a perfect way to camouflage the taste as everyone loves cutlets!
From Savi: Here goes my carrot-beetroot cutlets! Its healthy and just perfect for kids and my son loves it!
- Carrots – 1 cup grated
- Beetroot – 1 cup grated
- Paneer – 1 cup grated
- Potatoes – 1/2 cup boiled and mashed
- Onions – 2 medium finely diced and chopped
- Ginger – 1 tbsp finely chopped
- Garlic – 3/4 tbsp finely chopped
- Cilantro – 2 tbsp finely chopped
- Green chillies – 1 tbsp finely chopped (can be reduced as per your taste)
- Pinch of turmeric
- Cinnamon powder – 2 tsp
- Clove powder – 2 tsp
- Heat a pan, add 2 tablespoon of oil, saute the onions till transparent.
- Add ginger and garlic and once the raw smell is done, add in the chopped green chillies and the masala powders.
- Then add the beets and carrots till its well done and the mix is of dry consistency, then add paneer, saute a few minutes and switch off.
- Add this mix to the mashed potatoes (ensure the mashed potatoes isn’t too soft or cutlets will crack).
