1/2 c. millet
2 c. water
3 red medium-sized beet, cooked and peeled
2-4 besan (garbanzo) flour
ghee or vegetable oil, for frying
Bring water to a boil and add the millet. Lower heat, cover and cook for 25-35 minutes until completely soft. Grate peeled beets in the food processor. Mix grated beets with the millet in a mixing bowl. Depending on the size of the beets, you may not need to add all of the millet. You want about equal parts beets to millet. Add enough besan flour to the mixture until it is still enough to form into patties. Add more besan flour as needed and spices to taste. Coat a cast iron frying pan with a little oil and heat over a medium heat. Cook the patties until browned on each side. Serve with yogurt or sour cream and enjoy!
