Beetroot Fry and An Award

Hello Friends,

So, I went and got beetroot after seeing so many of you posting beet-root recipes. It had been a while since I made it anyways. Last time I made it, my husband and son refused to eat and I was the only one left alone to consume the rest of the curry :( Anyways, I can't blame them as most of the time you will agree that it tastes bland or like mud or soil. No offense to people who love it.

When I saw this recipe @ Anita's Kitchen, I had to try it as it was very tempting. So, I gave it a try for tonight and oh boy, oh boy, was it a hit or what. My son just finished everything and guess what he is running around saying, his blood has become stronger (immediately after The touch of chana dal in it made it even better.
Beetroot Fry

Beetroot - 2 cups finely chopped (not grated, but chopped) I used 2 beetroots along with leaves.
Onion - 1 cup finely chopped
Garlic - 2 cloves
Chana Dal (Gram Dal) - 1 tbsp
Jeera (Cumin Seeds) - 1 tsp
Rai (Mustard Seeds) - 1 tsp
Haldi (Turmeric Powder) - 1/2 tsp
Red Chilli Powder - 1/2 tsp
Coriander Powder - 1/2 tsp
Garam Masala - 1/2 tsp
Amchur - 1/2 tsp
Chat Masala - 1/2 tsp
Salt - as per taste
Oil - 1 tsp

  • Take a pan, add oil, let it heat up and then add rai and jeera.
  • Once they start spluttering, add onion and garlic and let them fry till onion is translucent.
  • Add chopped beetroot and all dry powders, 1 cup water, cover and cook for about 15 minutes (or till it is well cooked).
  • Remove lid and let it dry up and fry for 4-5 minutes.

Serve it with roti/rice or paratha, however you may like.
