Beetroot Fritters. Peedikotletid

Beetroot is delicious. And healthy. While beetroot is sweet I prefer to serve it with pickled cucumber or cheese to complement sweetness with sour and salty.
Caraway seeds is something Estonian. This is obvious that beetroot and caraway seeds goes together.

Add semolina to achieve best conistent and thickness. In case beetroot is very juicy you need this maybe more.
