Beetroot Cutlet Recipe – Appetizer

Turn beets into a delicious fried snack, beets cutlet or fritters…

Lately, I’ve been obsessed with beet juice and even made my Man drink it. He frowned and then gulped it down. For that, he deserved a delicious snack out of beets. Made this beetroot cutlet on a Sunday evening and we both enjoyed it. You wouldn’t feel the earthy beet taste in this cutlet, hence anyone who dislikes beet for its earthy taste like my Man would enjoy this cutlet.
