Yield / Serves
Beetroot â€“ 1 cup (grated)

Oil â€“ for deep frying.
Get all the ingredients ready. Take 1 cup of grated beetroot in a mixing bowl. Add chopped onion, bell pepper, coriander leaves, ajwain, cumin seeds and salt. Mix everything well.
Now add the dry flours to bind the vegetables. I added 2 tbsp of gram flour and all purpose flour. You can add more, in case you feel it is watery.
Once the mixture is ready, Take a heavy bottomed pan and add oil into it. Heat on medium flame. Now prepare the balls from the mixture.
Once the oil is heated, drop the balls. Flip the sides and allow it to cook well. Here we wonâ€™t see much difference in color, So make sure to become crisp and then take out.
Rest on the paper towel for a few mins to drain the excess oil.
Once it is done, serve with ketchup or Curd. Yummy beetroot balls are ready to serve.
