A fantastic way to consume the healthy Beetroots.
So, I know people who love beetroots and I can count them on fingers of my one hand. He He. Yeah. Beetroot being a favourite is something so rare that diamonds possibly cannot compete. Anyways, as doctor keep forcing us to consume beetroots we have to find options to eat them in a way we can appreciate them. I have already posted a yummy beetroot soup earlier. Let’s try a subji this time. I promise your taste buds are going to be happy to eat beetroots this way.
- Beetroots : 3, peeled and grated
- Onion : 1, chopped
- Garlic : 5 to 6 cloves, crushed
- Green Chillies, 2, chopped
- Karipatta : 8 to 10 leaves
- Rai : 1 teaspoon
- Grated Coconut : 1/2 cup
- Salt to taste
In a pan with 2 tablespoon of oil of your choice, add rai and let them crackle. Then throw in the curry leaves, crushed garlic and green chillies. Let it fry for roughly 30 to 40 seconds.
Add in the onions and fry them. Add salt and let the onions tenderise. Then add in the grated beetroot. You can also chop. But I personally prefer to grate as the biting into chopped beetroots is somewhat boring for me.
Mix well and fry on high flame for a minute. Lower the flame, cover and cook for about 7 – 8 minutes. Depends on how you cooked you want the beetroots to be. I like to have some bite / crunch to it. Then add in the grated fresh coconut to it. Mix and serve. This is what ups the entire game. I have tried with dried desiccated coconut as well. But fresh coconut cannot be replaced. It add crunch, flavour, taste and makes the dish absolutely interesting and irresistible.
That’s it. No need of any masalas to make it yummy. Just the most simplest and yummiest recipe with beetroot. I teamed it up with some instant dosa and coconut chutney. This tastes amazing with garama garam fulka or even dal-rice.
BE YUMMY. BE HEALTHY.
