Beet Chops

While most shy away from the earthy taste of this root veggie, I love the versatility it affords and often sneak it into the most unexpected places. These little delights are a healthy and finger lickin alternative tothe usual potato patties.

Ing: 2 beetroots
      1 carrot
      1/2 cauliflower
      1 large turnip
      1 medium potato
       handful of chopped coriander
      1 tsp red chilli powder
      1 tsp garam masala
      1/4 cup roasted peanut powder
      1 spring onion, finely chopped
      2 tbsp cornflour to bind
      salt to taste

Method: Dice and boil the beets, carrot, cauliflower, turnip and potato. Cool and mash. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Shape into round flat patties. Heat some oil on a griddle or frying pan and cook the beet chops till crisp on both sides. Serve up hot in a bun with some chilled yogurt or mayonnaise.
