My Notes:

  1. Adjust spice levels with green chillies.
  2. Ginger and garlic quantities are purely personal choice, so feel free to use to suit your taste.
  3. Instead of grating the veggies, you can also boil them along with potatoes and mash.
  4. You can also shallow fry instead of deep frying. But for this shape them flat like tikkis. 
  5. If your hands become stained during preparation and cooking beetroot, rub some lemon juice over them to help remove the colour or just use hand gloves.
  6. You can boil potatoes using any method, though I have used pressure cooker method.
  7. In case the mixture becomes too soft and loose, you can add some more breadcrumbs or corn flour or gram flour and mix. This will remove excess moisture.
