Dahi Beets Cutlet

Its too hot since three days, i want to prepare anything and something refreshing for our lunch..i planned to make out beets cutlet with grated beets, cooked potatoes spiced with chilly powder, garam masala and prepared as cutlets with corn flour paste and bread crumbs...usually i do add many veggies to make out as vegetable cutlets but this time i want to make out simply with fresh beets i bought sterday from our farmer's market which is quite difficult to find out..instead of making out simple stir fry with beets i prepared this beets cutlets which is really very much tasty....After prepared my beets cutlets as shallow fry i soaked just 5 beets cutlets in a spiced curd and arranged in fridge...while serving the lunch i served this dahi cutlets to my H, who loved very much and asked to turned all the cutlets as dahi cutlets...he enjoyed having this delicious dahi cutlets for snacks...Healthy, refreshing and tasty dahi cutlets goes to Priti's Summer Treat....


For Cutlets:
1cup Beets (cooked and grated)
2cups Potatoes (cooked )
1no Onion (chopped)
1tsp Red chilly powder
1/2tsp Jeera powder
1tsp Garam masala powder
1/4cup Corn flour
1/4cup Bread crumbs
Salt
Oil for shallow frying

For Making Dahi Cutlet:
2cup Curd
1/4tsp Mustard seeds+urad dal
1/2tsp Oil
Salt
2tsp Mint leaves (chopped)
 
Smash the cooked potatoes and add the cooked and grated beets with red chilly powder, jeera powder, garam masala powder, chopped coriander leaves and salt...Heat few drops of oil and add the chopped onion to the hot oil and stir until the onions turns transculent, add the cooked onions to the potato-beats mixture and turn everything as dough...take a 10-12 balls and flatten it as cutlets..

Mix the corn flour with enough water as white paste..dip each cutlets in white sauce and roll it evenly in bread crumbs, fry as shallow frying until both sides of the cutlets turns brown...drain the excess of oil in a paper towel..

Heat the oil and add the mustard seeds, urad dal and add this tadka to the curd as well as the chopped mint leaves...Soak the already fried cutlets and serve chilled....
Refreshing and delicious dahi cutlets!!
