1 – Medium onion (finely chopped)
1/2 tsp – Ginger-green chilli paste
1/2 tsp – Chaat masala
1 tbsp – Rice flour
Salt to taste
*In a bowl, put grated beetroot and potatoes. Mix the two properly. To this, add ginger-green chilli paste, chaat masala, salt, and mix.
*In a pan, add the onion and dry roast it for a while till it turns slightly brown.
*Add the roasted onion to the beetroot mixture bowl. Now mix the ingredients well. Add some rice flour for binding and mix.
*Take out a portion of the mixture and use your hands to fold it in the shape of a tikka. Repeat the process with the rest of the mixture.
*In the heated pan used for onion earlier, roast the beetroot kebabs or tikkas. You can also add a little oil. Once they are cooked, serve.
