Beetroot Mushroom Cutlet
Today's recipe is a quick and delicious snack/appetizer....the good old favorite, vegetable cutlet with a twist. Cutlets are everyone's favorite and you get it everywhere in India.My family enjoys vegetable cutlet,just as much as the love meat cutlet. Beetroot mushroom cutlet is one of our favorites. It has the beautiful color and the earthy sweetness of beetroot,the mild meaty taste of mushrooms and aromatic spices. It is delectable and I am sure even non-vegetarians will find this interesting. Serve this with ketchep or with mint chutney and enjoy with a cup of tea.
