Kababs are an all time favourite with everyone. These quinoa beetroot kababs are a healthy treat on weekend nights . Your guests will appreciate these .
You can make these in advance . Roll them in bread crumbs just before pan frying.
Use either boiled or roasted beet root.
I always roast my beet root. It enhances their sweetness. I keep a few roasted ones in the freezer. Makes life easy.
Boil quinoa as per packet instructions. You can always freeze extra .
I have used Berbere spice mix. It's an Ethiopian spice mix. But feel free to use spice mix of your choice.

Beetroot 1/3 cup grated
Boiled potatoes 2 medium sized

Divide into 8 - 10 portions.
Roll them and then flatten them like tikkis.
Take bread crumbs in a shallow bowl.
Mix in some salt and berbere spice mix.
Roll the tikkis in the bread crumbs to give a nice coating.
Heat a non stick pan.
Brush the kababs with oil and cook them on hot pan till golden on both sides.

I served it with apple and rocket salad and hung curd dip seasoned with chili garlic oil.
