  • 2 teaspoon chaat masala
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala powder
  • 1/2 cup semolina
  • 1 teaspoon coriander powder

  • Now make round patties and cutlets using your hands to shape them.
  • Take semolina in a shallow bowl. Season with some salt and cayenne.
  • Dip the patties till they are coated in semolina.
  • Now shallow fry the patties on each side till they get a nice golden coating.

You can add herbs like parsley, basil or mint as per taste.
You can also add boiled spinach to the mix if you like.
Taste and adjust seasoning.
You can airfry these beetroot cutlets after brushing them with oil or bake them instead of shallow frying them.
In place of bread crumbs, you could use rice flour.
