Beetroots have been in cultivated since Roman times. In fact, we have to thank them for cultivating a lot of the vegetable we eat today. Beetroots are medicinal plants. You can check that out here.
After the beetroot smoothie yesterday I am sure you have guessed I am back again, with a theme. It’s one vegetable and different forms. When my younger one was small I used to feed her boiled beetroot. My elder one used to be thrilled with her sister’s lips that used to become pink. She used to call her Madhuri Dixit, who happened to be her favourite heroine.
Today try this vegetable. It’s delicious and simple to make.
You can make it diced small or grating the beetroot. Actually, if you grate the beetroot after peeling it will save you cooking time. In fact, its just add the grated beetroot in the tempering, stir and let it sit covered for about 5 minutes. Here I had to wait for the beetroot to cook.
Let’s get down straight to the recipe.
