                                                  Though not a big fan of this vegetable I still have to put it my list just to avoid repeated menus or making using of the very options available in vegetable section. Its quite depressing sometimes just to think that I have no other choice but to cook Dal or Potato even though I cooked it just a week or two before. Doesn't this always happen to you too??? So just to avoid being bored of eating same vegetables I occasionally include this in our diet. Glad that my husband doesn't complain and loves it too.

Beetroot---------------2 medium ones
Onion------------------1 small one
Grated Coconut------1 tbsp
Curry leaves----------10-15 chopped
Urad Dal--------------1 tsp
Cumin Seeds---------1/2 tsp
Turmeric--------------1/4 tsp
Oil----------------------2 tbsp


1.Peel the skin thoroughly and chop the beetroot into small cubes and boil in hot water for 3mins and drain off the water.

2.Heat oil in a frying pan and add Urad dal, Cumin Seeds and fry till nicely browned.

3.Add chopped Curry leaves, chopped Onion, Turmeric , Chopped Jalapeños and fry till nicely soft.

4.Add the boiled Beetroot to the pan with some salt and fry on medium heat for 10-12mins. By this time the beetroot is nicely cooked.

5.Finally add grated coconut and cook for 3 more mins and turn off. Serve hot.
