Hey everyone, Welcome to foodbymama- a homemaker’s guide for those who love food and cooking and basically everything about it. I try using the simplest ingredients to create finger- licking recipes for my family. And like every other kid, my little one tries running as far as possible from healthy veggies. So, this other day I was thinking of some way to make him try beetroot and as stubborn as he is, I couldn’t get him to impress with the vibrant color of it. And these Beet bites were what finally worked (Pheww!). So here’s how to make these delicious bites-
Beetroots (peeled and washed) – 2
Potatoes (peeled and boiled) – 2
Crushed peanuts- 4 Tbsp
Bread crumbs- 4 tbsp
Salt and pepper- to taste
Green chilies (finely chopped)
Fennel seeds- ½ tsp
Oil- to fry
How to make-
- Grate the peeled beetroots and squeeze the juice out of it- you don’t really want the bites to be soggy.
- Mash the boiled potatoes and add it to the strained and grated beetroot. Mix all the remaining ingredients except for half of the breadcrumbs.
- Add more of the bread crumbs if needed, just enough for the mix to stay bounded. Make small balls or any shape that you like out of it.
- Coat the bites with the remaining of the bread crumbs and deep fry. I used air frying instead of deep frying in oil for an added health quotient, but deep frying works just fine.
