1 lb Beetroot
½ cup Fresh Grated Coconut
½ tsp Chili-Ginger-Coriander paste
½ tsp Red Chili Powder
Few Curry Leaves
Peel and grate beetroots. Beetroot has a natural coloring and sweet taste. Be careful while peeling and grating, color does not stain but spreads. Use paper and tissues and work away from white appliances. Clean immediately after working with beets. A very good nutritious vegetable.
Grated beetroot can be cooked in a pressure cooker with salt or on stove top. Drain the water completely.
Take 3 tsp of oil in a skillet and make tadka with ½ tsp urad dal, ½ tsp chenna dal, few mustard seeds, jeera, hing and a red chili. Add chili-ginger-coriander paste, few curry leaves and grated coconut and fry for a few minutes.
Then add cooked beetroot and mix and cook for few minutes. Taste for salt and seasoning.
This is a good side dish with rice.
