  • 3 nos. medium sized potatoes boiled & peeled
  • 1 nos. raw beetroot grated
  • 1/2 cup mixed veggies, chopped (carrots, green peas & French beans par-boiled
  • 1/4 cup red onion finely chopped
  • 1 nos. green chili finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp coriander leaves (cilantro) roughly chopped
  • 1 tsp ground spice mix (recipe mentioned above in the post) garam masala
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp red chilli powder/ paprika optional
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tsp ginger garlic paste


  1. Start with boiling the potatoes, cool and peel them. Set them aside.

  2. Grate the raw beets and set that aside as well.

  3. Boil the chopped veggies for approximately 5 minutes in 1 cup of water. Drain the veggies once they are done and set them aside.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, add the boiled potatoes, boiled veggies and the grated beets. Also add the ground spice mix as per the recipe above, chopped onions, green chilies and chopped cilantro (coriander).
  5. Add the paprika/ red chili powder, turmeric powder, ginger garlic paste and salt to taste. Mash everything together and make a dough. Set it aside for 10 minutes before shaping these patties/ cutlets.
  6. Then shape the dough into patties/ cutlets. I made 6 medium sized round ones. You can smaller cutlets too, about 9-10 of them. Refrigerate them for at least 30-40 minutes before pan/ shallow frying them.
  7. I rolled each patty/ cutlet in some breadcrumbs. Shallow fry them for about 6-8 minutes on each side. Drain them on a kitchen tissue.

  8. Serve them piping hot with some dips, salad, etc. Or use them as burger patties. They taste awesome.

Recipe Notes

Skip the breadcrumbs for a Gluten free version.

Add the spices according to your preference and tolerance levels.

These patties can be frozen for up to 3-4 days. They may last longer but I have never tried keeping them beyond 3 days.
