Tips & Variations

  1. I prefer to shallow fry the cutlets, but the cutlets can be deep fried as well. Add more breadcrumbs if you are deep frying to bind it together.
  2. You can use cornflour or plain flour instead of breadcrumbs.
  3. You can add other vegetables like onions, peppers, cabbage along with beetroot and carrot.
  4. It is important to squeeze the water from the carrots and beetroot or the cutlets mixture will be very wet and difficult to form the balls.
  5. You can keep the mixture in the fridge for an hour as cooling the mix in the fridge helps in binding the whole mixture together.
  6. You can use the squeezed water from beetroot and carrots to make dough and/or batter.
  7. If the cutlet mixture looks wet, you can add some more breadcrumbs.
  8. Make sure to fry at high temperature otherwise the cutlets might break.
