Beetroot-Paneer-Oats Cutlet

Wednesday, April 22, 2020

As a kid, I have never liked the Beetroot due to its strong earthy flavour but later when I have read and learn more about its nutritional values and amazing benefits it can provide to us like vitamins C, Iron, Calcium, Manganese and many more, I starting finding out new ways to consume this vegetable in my day-to-day life. Interestingly, it does not lose it's nutrients even after cooking or boiling. So, what other reason do you need to include this amazing vegetable to your diet. You can add this to your Vegetable juice, Smoothies, Raita, Beet Paratha, Poori etc. Today, I am sharing the recipe of Beet-Paneer Cutlet to give you another way of consuming this much hated veggie.


I have seen and tried many recipes of Beet Cutlets but some were lacking the flavours; while other were not as healthy as I wanted. Therefore, came up with this recipe that has right balance of taste and health. In today's recipe, the star ingredient is the freshly grounded Garlic-Ginger-Chilli-Cumin paste. Also, to keep the health quotient in mind, I have made these patties with Oats and Paneer. Flaxseed powder is the added bonus to add that extra dose of Omega-3, other proteins and fibre but this is completely optional.

Let see the Ingredients and Procedure to make the delicious Beet-Paneer-Oats Cutlet.
