Beetroot & Potato Patty

An excellent source of folate and manganese, beetroot is one of the few vegetables which brings color and health to the food we eat. Beetroot is loved as a pickle, in curd preparations, as a dip and simply raw in salads.

My fondness for beetroot stems from my childhood memories of the train journeys we would take to Kolkata in our summer vacations from Delhi. I would look forward to breakfast when those heart shaped beetroot patties would do the round. Crispy fried outer covering with three prominent flavors of black pepper, beetroot and potato.


I tried to rekindle the magic and nostalgia with these shallow fried patties. Here’s my beetroot and potato patty, shallow fried to perfection, a perfect snack for toddlers and adults alike!
