Beetroot Shahi Tikki

Happy New Year!

There's always fight between your mind & heart.. It's hard to decide whose correct & who isn't.! I am rowing in same boat only. My Mind wanted "Fashion" post & my Heart said "Travel" or "Recipe" post as the first one for the year. As usual Heart took over mind  :D
Have taken recipe from Sanjeev Kapoor and given my touch to it.. Hope u enjoy it.!

Beetroot Shahi Tikki

Ingredients :-
1 Beetroot- Boiled, Grated & excess water squeezed.
2 Large size Potato- Boiled & Grated.
2 Amla(Goosebeery)- Grated
1 Onion- Chopped finely
Salt & Pepper to taste
Cornflour- 2 tbsp( make paste with 4 tbsp of water)

"Shahi"- portion
Paneer- 1/2 cup crumbled
Almonds & Cashew- 1/2 cup - Grind them into powder
Mix them.

Method :-
Saute onion in little oil till its translucent in color.
Add beetroot n salt saute for few minutes till all the moisture evaporates
Add potato... mix well. Add amla.
Season it with pepper & few drops of lemon juice.
Cool the mixture.
Flatten the cooled mixture on your wet/oiled palm.
Put little shahi mixture & wrap it properly.(scroll down to see the pictures)
Dip each piece into the cornflour & roll over sooji.
Now, a- U can preheat oven n roast it in them
           b- Fry them, or
           c- Roast them on tawa/griddle with minimum oil. I did this with olive oil.

Serve it with Coriander/dhaniya(-onion-garlic-ginger+lemon juice+salt+cumin) chutney.
It's nutritious, healthy n yummy too.
