Given the health benefits of Beetroot, I try to make this Curry at least once in a few days and we all like it too. Just that chopping beetroot is so messy that I am sometimes a little lazy to chop it and clean the mess! 

But recently, my cousin told me a neat idea to chop beetroot. She asked me to pressure cook the beetroot as is and upon cooling, it is easier to peel and chop it. I tried it and found it to be useful. So here is the humble Beetroot Curry..


Ingredients - 

Beetroot chopped 3 cups
Peanuts 2 Tbsp
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)
Salt as per taste

Note - I also mix chopped carrot and it tastes equally divine.

Method Of Preparation - 

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

Coarse grind Peanuts, 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. 

Add the cooked beetroot, turmeric and ground peanut mixture. Mix in salt and sugar. 

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