Beetroot Poriyal – A simple Beetroot fry

Serves   : 4

Ingredients :

Beetroot –

2 medium size ( chopped in small pieces)

Red Chilli – 4 ( cut into 3 pieces each)

Mustard seeds – 1 tsp

Grated Ginger – 1/2 tsp

Coriander Powder – 1 1/2 tsp

Red Chilli powder – 1/2 tsp ( Optional)

Curry leaves – 4

Oil – 1 tsp

Water – 1 1/2 cups

Salt to taste

Method :

  1. In a Wok/Kadai, add the oil . When the oil heats up add the mustard seeds.
  2. As soon as the Mustard seeds splutter , add the dry red chilli’s ,grated ginger and curry leaves.
  3. Now add the chopped beetroot , red chilli powder , coriander powder and salt
  4. Since beetroot has its own sweetness, I added the extra red chilli powder. You can choose to do away with it
  5.  Add the water and allow it to cook until done. To check if its done I generally see if the beetroots show some transparency. You can alternatively mash a piece and check.
  6. When done, remove from heat and serve with Sambhar or Karakozhambu and Rice,
