Valentine’s is not over till you have had some heart-shaped delicacies and this Healthy Beetroot Cutlet (Valentines Heart Patties-V-GF)  will surely make your Valentine’s extra special.

The sweetness from beets mixed with veggies and spices gives these cutlets/patties such a delicious and rich savory flavor.

Every year, I come up with different Valentine’s breakfast options as variety is the spice of life.

Especially, if you guys have different tastes like savory-spicy food and sweets food

But, since it’s Valentines, I thought why not create something that both will like and saves time too and oh healthy too.

Hence, these cutlets were decided upon and I’m planning to serve them along with Coconut-Raspberry Valentines Milkshake that I shared last year.


Now, beets are not an everyday vegetable for a lot of us although I do try have it once a month.

Also, I always found it to be too red in color and definitely sweeter than I like BUT if you read all about the healthy stuff these tiny little beets provide, you would want to include them in your regular meal plan.

Beets are rich in phytonutrients that are essential for healthy nerve and muscle functions along with much more.

You do have to consider one thing while using beets and that is not to cook them for long as they lose the phytonutrients the longer they are cooked.

Hence, for my recipe, I’m lightly frying them over a high flame which quickly cooks them and keeps the inside soft and moist.



As I’ve mentioned above, I’m using seasonal vegetables in this like carrots, potatoes, capsicum, etc and the mix of all these vegetables makes this recipe even more healthy and colorful.

Since it’s all lovey-dovey, I’m using the heart shaped cookie cutter to give them a perfect heart shape.

Here’s a picture of how I made them and also, I decorated one of the heart cutlets with a simple mint yogurt dressing.




Once you’ve had all your veggies+beets mixed together, it’s time to add some kind of binder to help cutlets hold its shape while frying.

I’m using a mix of oatmeal flour and almond flour which I had bought for a cookie recipe but you can use any other flour or even bread for this.

That’s it the mixture is ready and it will take 10 minutes to make 6 heart shape cutlets (medium side).



This Healthy Beetroot Cutlet also makes for a great burger stuffing or serve them along with a hot cuppa joe for a perfect little snack.

No matter how or when you serve them, they always make everyone happy.

So go ahead and make them for your someone special and enjoys them together this Valentine.

Infact these  Healthy Beetroot Cutlet are extremely popular in Indian cuisine and mostly known as ‘Chukandar ki Tikki’ or Beetroot Tikki (where chukandar = beetroot in hindi).

  • Wendy February 11, 2017 (3:43 am)

    Molly, not only are these beet patties perfect for Valentines Day (red color and all), but they sound absolutely delicious! I am definitely planning to make these because my husband and I both love beets. I also am excited to make these for my gluten free (and veggie) daughter.
    I have a few questions. Is capsicum the same as bell pepper? Where do you find mango powder? I am thinking that I could grind up freeze dried mango which I have seen in the stores or use lemon juice as you suggest.

    • Molly Kumar February 11, 2017 (7:07 am)

      Hi Wendy, Thanks for visiting and I’m so glad you liked the beetroot cutlets. Yes, capsicum is ‘bell peppers’ and you can completely skip dry mango powder as its used to add a little bit of tang to the savory recipe. But the frozen dried mango may not work as its going to make it sweet. Add lemon juice or just omit it completely. Hope you all enjoy it as much as we do. Happy Valentines to You’ll 🙂

  • Joely Smith February 11, 2017 (1:06 am)

    I tried beets as a youth and hated them. It was not until about 2 years ago I tried GOOD beets. There is a BIG difference between canned and fresh beets and I am so glad I gave them another try! Your recipe looks so good! Will give it a try!

    • Molly Kumar February 14, 2017 (5:02 am)

      I so agree with you and I love the flavor of fresh beets. I’m so glad you liked the recipe n thanks for visiting?
