Beetroot Curry is one of the few curries which my kids enjoy without any problem. So on days when I find that they refuse to eat any other protein (read : Dal/Sambar), I found that sneaking in soy granules in this curry is very useful for us! 

It also happens to be a chosen curry for my older one's lunch box. So it is definitely a frequently prepared one at home!
So here is the curry for Day 4 of BM 10. While here check what my fellow marathoners are up to in this edition of Blogging Marathon.

Beetroot-Soy Granules Curry

Ingredients - 

Beetroot chopped 3 cups
Soy Granules 1 cup (Or powdered soy chunks)
Coconut (fresh or dry) Grated 1 Tbsp
Coriander leaves a few 
Turmeric 1/4 tsp
Sugar 1/2 tsp (Optional)
Green Chillies 1-2 (or as per taste..I used a dash of red chilli powder this time)
Salt as per taste

Beetroot-Soy Granules Curry

Seasoning (Oil 1 tsp, Chana Dal 1 tsp, Urad Dal 1 tsp, Cumin seeds 1/2 tsp, Mustard seeds 1/2 tsp, Curry leaves few)

Method Of Preparation - 

Pressure cook the peeled and chopped beetroot. (It can be cooked on the stove top too).

Meanwhile soak the soy granules in 3 cups of hot water for about 10 min or so. Squeeze out excess water in a couple changes of water. Keep it aside.

Coarse grind Coriander leaves and Coconut.

In a heated kadai/wok add oil, and the rest of the seasoning and after the mustard seeds crackle, add the chopped green chillies (or red chilli powder). 

Add the cooked beetroot, soy granules, turmeric and ground coconut mixture. Mix in salt and sugar. 

Mix well and remove from heat. Serve it along with Dal and Rice.
