A beautiful subzi for valuable good health, Beetroot Tikkis in Spinach Gravy features a colourful and thoughtful combination of ingredients. Beetroot and carrot together with tangy spices gives rise to a lip-smacking tikki that goes just too well with the garlic-flavoured spinach gravy. Beetroot being a storehouse of antioxidants helps iron in doing its activities, while the use of oats as a binding agent instead of potatoes or cornflour makes the recipe fibre-rich too.

Tarla Dalal    Hi Manisha, Spinach will taste a little bitter and as it is a health recipe there is no milk or cream added as well..
