Equipment

  • Foil
  • Oven
  • Knife
  • Blender

Ingredients

  • A small beetroot
  • 250 ml curds
  • 200 ml of water
  • 3 tsp cumin powder
  • 1/4 tsp hing/asafoetida
  • Salt to taste

Instructions

  • Wash, peel and slice the beet.
  • Wrap the beet in an aluminium foil and bake at 200C/390F and bake till soft. I needed 10 minutes.
  • Let the foil cool completely then remove the beetroot.
  • Add the slices to the blender with 1 cup water and crush the beets till you get a fine paste.
  • Next add the curds, cumin powder, salt and hing.
  • Run the blender till you get a nice homogenous mixture. Take care not to beat for long or the butter will separate.
  • Adjust the thickness.
  • Serve immediately.

Notes

In case you are planning to serve on ice reduce the water to about 1oo ml.
