Beetroot Cutlets

Few weeks ago I had shared one recipe of Beetroot Patties which was purely vegan version but this time I opted for a different recipe of beetroot which is an eggetarian version in the form of cutlets. It has also got different flavor from Beetroot Patties as it has different spices and flavoring ingredients involved.Beetroot Cutlets
Beetroot Cutlets are delicious snacky food to incorporate in you the goodness and health benefits of beets. Beetroot cutlets have involved boiled potatoes for binding; fresh flavoring and spice ingredients like green chillies, coriander leaves, ginger, freshly ground pepper; tang of lemon; an outer crispness of bread crumbs coated on egg-dipped beet-cutlets.
So why wait to have this delicious-healthy dish, quickly have a look at recipe to prepare it at ease.
