When I choose Beetroot as my vegetable for the week I was trying to make up for all the hate I had for the vegetable. For beetroot vegetable used to be our staple vegetable in the hostel mess. The vegetable though I liked initially slowly I started hating it. the beetroots were boiled in water and then a tempering and coconut
The vegetable though I liked initially slowly I started hating it. The beetroots were boiled in water and then a tempering and coconut added to it.
The boiled water was retained in the vegetable healthy thought that was there is a limit to the amount of water one can tolerate. The water from the vegetable used to run right round the plate soaking everything on the plate everything appeared red!!!
Not a very pretty site when you peep in someone’s plate to see what was there for food. 🙂
But now I have come to like the vegetable especially now that I am struggling with my health related issues. This is just what the doctor ordered( Check here).
Anyway, today enjoy the Beetroot Halwa that tastes amazingly delicious. Mine was a tad bit too sweet not that I minded but you may not like it!!
