Dish-A-Day: 03/31/2012 - Beetroot Curry

Prologue: Go here.

03/31/2012: Beetroot Curry - One of my favorite vegetable that I like more to have it in a mixed vegetable juice than a curry. Yet once in a while I do make it as a curry sometimes.

Cant post a pic still. :(
Beetroot - 2 medium (Washed and diced to small pieces)
Onions - 1 small (Diced to small pieces)
Green Chilis - 4 medium chopped to fine pieces
Coconut Powder - 2 tbsps (Either ground fresh Coconut or frozen Coconut Powder or dry Coconut Powder will work fine)
Salt to taste
Oil - 2tsps
Spices for Seasoning - 1/2 tsp Mustard Seeds, 1/2 tsp Cumin Seeds, 1/2 tsp Chana Dal, Pinch of Turmeric, Pinch of Hing / Asafoetida, few Curry Leaves
1) In a sauce pan, heat oil. Add the Spices as mentioned.
2) Once the Spices are fried well, add Onions and Green Chilis. Fry till they are translucent.
3) Now add the Beetroot pieces. Cook under cover on low flame till the pieces are cooked well.
5) Now add Salt and Coconut Powder, fry a little and remove from flame.
