Beetroot ❤ Tikki

Beetroot patties is easy, delicious, healthy and colorful snack for tea time or for kids snacks . I wanted to post beetroot cutlets for very long time but I was not able to take pictures whenever I made this until this time it happened finally and sharing this beautiful, perfectly spiced beetroot Hearts  with you all.

Recipe adapted..revisfoodgraphy.

INGREDIENTS:

Beetroot – 1 large
Potato – 2 medium
Bread – 2 slices
Salt – 1/2 tsp (adjust per taste)
Red chilli powder – 1/2 tsp (adjust per taste)
Jeera powder – 1/4 tsp
Amchur Powder – 1/4 tsp
Garam Masala – 1/4 tsp
Mint leaves – 4 (finely chopped)
Coriander leaves – 2 Tbsp (finely chopped)
All purpose flour – for coating
Bread crumbs – for coating
Oil – for frying

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. First cook the potatoes, roughly mash them and keep aside. Also, cook the beet root and grate it finely.124
  2. Add the bread slices to a blender/mixie and grind into a dry powder.125
  3. Add the mashed potato, grated beetroot, salt, chilli, jeera, amchur, garam masala, mint, coriander leaves to a large mixing bowl. Now, mix all the ingredients until well combined.126
  4. Now, add the ground bread powder little by little and mix until you get a thick dough. I used powder from 2 bread slices.
  5. Add the all purpose flour to a small bowl. Add sufficient water to make a flour paste and keep aside. Spread the bread crumbs in a plate for coating and keep aside.
  6. Now heat a pan with oil for shallow frying and set the flame to Medium. While the oil is getting heated,take a small portion of the dough and shape it into hearts using a cookie cutter. Now dip the prepared hearts into the flour paste.127
  7. Now, place it on top of the bread crumbs. Slightly press with your fingers to flatten out the hearts. Turn the hearts and make sure that the other side of the heart is also covered with bread crumbs.128
  8. Shallow fry the patties until both the sides of the cutlet turns golden brown by flipping. Once done remove from the oil and place in a paper towel to remove excess oil. Repeat the same with the other patties

129Enjoy hot with ketchup,curd dip…

Notes:

  • Make sure your beetroot and potato are totally dry before mashing/grating.
  • The addition of salt and other masala powders depends on the size and type of potato used. Do give a taste of the mixture before forming into patties and adjust the salt, spiciness and other masala quantity as per your taste.
  • The outer coating should be less for this cutlet, so that the color of the beetroot is seen through outside.
  • Try to fry the cutlets in medium flame. High flame leads to burnt bread crumbs and Low temperature leads to oil absorption.
  • You can  add onions and other veggies too.
  • Beetroot contains potassium, magnesium & iron as well as vitamins A, B6 & C and Folic Acid. It also contains carbohydrates, proteins, powerful antioxidants and soluble fiber. Not only is beetroot great for boosting stamina and making muscles work harder, but also can help in reducing blood pressure as well as its associated risks such as heart attacks & strokes.

Kurkuri Bhindi (Okra) in Air Fryer

My mom always made kurkuri bhindi ..In my home kids say it “Nani wali bhindi”when I tried first time I thought it was very oily. I have always been a big fan of Kurkuri Bhindi. But given that it is deep fried, we don’t make it much at home.

So one day I thought I made it in  air-fryer so I searched  the recipe and decided to make it.

Recipe adapted ..kuchpakrahahai.blogspot.

Without further adieu, let me introduce you to the magical, crispy and guilt free Kurkuri Bhindi made in the Air fryer.

INGREDIENTS:

Bhindi/Okra/Ladyfinger- 250 grams
Gram flour- 2 tbsp
Salt- 1 tsp (or to taste)
Red Chilli Powder- 1tsp
Coriander Powder- 1tsp
Cumin Powder- 1/2 tsp
Mango Powder- 1/2 tsp
Chaat Masala – 1 tsp
Oil – 2 tbsp

INSTRUCTION:

  1. Wash the bhindi under running water and let it dry for sometime. Slit all the bhindi vertically in four pieces.140
  2. Sprinkle gram flour, salt, red chilli powder, coriander powder, cumin powder, mango powder, chaat masala and oil over it. Mix it well such that al the spices and gram flour sticks to the bhindi.141
  3. Preheat the electric fryer for 5 minutes at 200 degrees.4)Once it is preheated, place the bhindi on the air fryer’s mesh and cook it at 180 degrees for next 12-13 minutes. Take the air fryer basket out and flip the bhindi pieces after 5 minutes intervals.142
  4. It may cook any moment after 10 minutes so keep an eye on it after this time.
  5. Based on the results, put in for 1 or 2 minutes based on judgement (be careful here as if it close to cooked, it can burn in a matter of 15 extra seconds).

“Kurkuri Bhindi” is ready. Top it up some more chaat masala if you want. Serve it with hot chapati or eat it as a snack 🙂

Notes:

  • You need to ensure the bhindi (lady finger) is absolutely dry before you mix it with the spices.
  • You can add crushed peanuts for extra crunch or per your taste .
  • Usually we buy small tender okra from our local stores to cook okra vegetable but for this recipe even thick okra will work because seeds will be removed and only okra skin will be used for this recipe.
  • Initially I used to leave the seeds in bhindi and fried it but turned out that seeds impart a bitter taste after frying.avoid this first de-seeded the  bhindi first.
