Beetroot Cutlet

I love Deep fried snacks....though not my hubby. And since they are high in calorie i tried to make them once in a while.For satisfying evening hunger i usually do some bajji with tea.But after seeing this cutlet i knew i had to tried this out.I tried vegetable chops before from her blog and we all loved it.This time with beetroot and we loved it.My lil one was soo happy with this she asked me to make again.
