I love fresh vegetables and fruits and luckily my daughter is not a fussy eater too. So adding vegetables to many existing recipes is a welcome change at home. These deep fried Beetroot kola urundai is a perfect snack for the kids especially after school treat. These are root vegetables which are packed with nutrients and are a great source of folate, fiber, manganese, potassium, iron and vitamin C. It is said to improve the blood flow and lower the cholesterol.

We can use them to make another snack Beetroot tikki as well , raita or a beautiful pink beetroot bread  The colour this root adds to any recipe makes it so inviting that your child will not refuse. Let us add more natural colours in our food instead of those bright artificial ones
