Few days back when I made beetroot for main course, everybody at home liked the taste. This time I thought to experiment slightly with the wonderful vegetable and make something different. I was anyway looking to make something for the evening snacks, so I made Beetroot Cutlets. I just cannot explain in words the yummy taste of the cutlets and just the right time to serve with tea or coffee. They can also be served as a starter and would set the mood for the main course. The cutlets looked very appealing covered in til with red and yellow contrasting colors and were just grabbed of the plate quickly. Why don’t you also give them a try, I’m sure you would have a wonderful evening. Use this Beetroot Cutlet Recipe and serve anytime you like.
