Spicy Beetroot Poriyal

     As you can view in my previous post Here and Here, am not a lover of sweet vegetables like carrot and beetroot. Even i dont know, how and what to do those veggies. One day, suddenly realized i have stopped feeding it to my kid completely. Though it is a healthy for all ages, i resumed my prepation and somehow googled but still am not satisfied with those recipes. One fine day, being my savior, my lunch mate bought a beetroot recipe as her side dish, i tasted it immediately and to my surprise, it reminds my mom preparation which she use to keep it as side dish for roti. Will i leave the chace??!! Got the recipe from her immediately and preparing it as a MUST side dish atleast weekly once.


ALL YOU NEED:
Diced Beetroot 1/4 kg
Chopped Onion 1 No.
Chopped Tomato 1 No.
Chilly Powder 1/2 spoon
Ginger-Garlic Paste 1 spoon
Pepper 1 spoon
Coconut 2 pieces
Salt To Taste


METHOD:
     Grind coconut and gingergarlic paste to a fine mixture. Take a pressure cooker, add beetroot, chopped onion, chopped tomato, chilly powder, grinded coconut mixture, pinch of salt and add a glass of water. Pressure cook it for 3 whistles. Once the pressure gets release, Keep a pan, pour the pressure cooked ingredients, boil it until it absorbs all the excess water. Meantime grind a spoon of pepper coarsely. Once the water evaporated, add the powdered pepper and adjust with salt, do fine sauting for 5 mins. Put off the flame, and serve hot with roti or steamed rice.

Note: You can also add boiled channa dhall, which add extra taste to it.

Different kind of dish in Beetroot! Looks like you have added channa too! Shall try it next time.

Lately I am in love with carrots and beets, just grate them, fry with oil-mustard-urad-onion-green chilly-curry leaves with some water. Finally add in coconut, thats it, delicious portal! Try it Sangee! :)
