beetroot patties

The other day had been to market and found some good bunches of beetroot,so i just grabbed them though i am not so fond of beets but if they are bolied i just cherish them with light seasoning of pepper,salt and lime juice,which my mom used to forcefully make me eat when i was expecting my baby.Since then boiled beetroot  has become my favourite.I already had few that way and still had some leftovers so wanted to try something else and then as usual i went on following few of my favourite blogs which i started following recently ,and soon discovered The Singing Chef raaga's beetroot patties , also simultaneously was going through divya's dilse blog who is hosting Tried and Tasted -march 2010 edition in which we can try any of raaga's recipe and post,wow !! sounds superb idea of posting an exact recipe in my blog who is one of my favaourite fellow bloggers.So here i am with the rare & unusual combination of peanuts & beetroots on which my hubby was bowled over,this recipe replica is taken from The Singing Chef ,i have tried the exact recipe just one single change as my bread stock was over though had some bread crumbs left in my pantry so i had to use them and now this recipe is going to tasted and tried event.
