How to make Beet Peanut Butter Bites:

  1. Take a mixing bowl and add all the ingredients, except oil and peanut butter. Mix well and keep aside for 15 mins
  2. Take a scoop from the mixture and roll to make a small ball, make a small indentation and fill it with about 1/4 to 1/2 tsp of peanut butter, roll it again by bringing the edges together into a small patty. Repeat it with remaining mixture
  3. Choose from the following to cook the patties, I have used the air frying method
    • Air Fry– Place the patties in the basket of the air fryer and brush them with some oil. Cook on 400 F for 20 mins or until golden and crisp, flip them after 12 mins
    • Pan Fry– Heat some oil in a pan, place the patties and cook until crisp & brown from both sides
    • Deep fry– Take 2 tbsp of corn flour and 4 tbsp of water in a small mixing bowl. Mix and make a nice thin slurry. Dip the patty in the slurry and deep fry until golden brown
    • Bake– Pre-heat the oven to 425 F or 220 F. Line a baking tray with parchment paper for easy cleanup. Place the patties on the baking tray and brush them with some oil. Bake for 20 mins or until golden-brown, flip them after 12 mins
  4. Your Beet Peanut Butter Bites are ready, relish with Yogurt Sauce.
