How to make Beetroot Patties with Middle Eastern flavour and feta cream
- Peel the raw beetroots and carrots. Roughly grate them using the large holes of a box grater.
- Sprinkle salt over the grated beetroot and carrots, allowing them to sit for 30 minutes.
- In the meantime, finely chop the onion.
- Heat olive oil in a frying pan and sauté the onions until they become almost tender. Add cumin and coriander powder and stir for about 1 minute until fragrant.
- Squeeze the grated beetroots and carrots with your hands to remove any excess liquid. Discard the liquid.
- In a mixing bowl, combine the squeezed beetroots/carrots, breadcrumbs, sautéed onion-cumin mixture, eggs, and a pinch of cayenne and black pepper. Mix thoroughly until well combined.
- Shape the mixture into 18 patties, forming them with your hands.
- Heat some olive oil in a large frying pan and cook the patties in batches for about 4-5 minutes on each side, until they turn firm and golden.
- While the patties cook, prepare the feta cream.
- In an electric chopper, combine all the ingredients for the feta cream and blend until well incorporated.
- Once the beetroot patties are cooked, serve them with a dollop of the creamy feta sauce.
Enjoy the delightful combination of the beetroot patties and the tangy feta cream.
