Grate 1 beetroot(beet). Add 3 green chillies(finely chopped),asafoetida(1/4 spoon),garam masala(1/2 spoon),chilly powder(1/4 spoon),turmeric powder(a pinch),bread crumbs(2 cups) and salt (as required and oil of course(for frying)
Mix all the above in a container without adding water.Prepare a soft dough out of it.If it is too watery, then add the bread crumbs little by little to thicken the dough.Now take a lemon size ball of the dough. Press it in your palm like patties.
Heat oil in a kadai. When it is hot enough(you ll know this when the drop of dough immediately floats to the top), dip the patties in bread for a coating.
Drop the patties in this hot oil carefully and fry them till the color changes to brown and it becomes crispy.
This goes well with tomato ketchup or tamarind chutney. I served it with chana masala.
Havent really got the mood to post something everyday so far….Today Im in a mood to share something with you guys. Srini and I recently wanted a healthy yet yummy snack for tea time. I had made a version of beetroot and aloo tikki some time earlier. But this time, I made it without aloo to make it perfect healthy.
