  2. Is there any alternative for beetroot? I can’t find it in our local grocery stores. If none, then is it possible not to add beetroot for this kind of recipe? I really wanted to try this because it is very simple and I think it looks delicious.

  3. Thanks! I tried it but I seemed to lack some spice. But overall, it tastes good!

  4. I like the plating with beetroot and a glass of dry red wine and most especially the food itself looks delicious. Thank you for this wonderful and delicious Hungarian Recipe.
