Beet root sabzi


Beetroot is a good source of calcium.This is a very simple recipe .I like the sweet taste of beetroot.

Ingredients : 2-3 medium beetroots,1tsp mustard seeds,1 green chilly,1tbsp oil,1/2 tsp urad dal,1/4 tsp hing,1 sprig of kadipatta leaves,1 tbsp fresh grated coconut ,salt to taste.

Method : Pressure cook the beet roots for 3-4 whistles or more.beetroot is a hard  vegetable & hence pressure  cooked in cooker ).After the cooker has cooled,remove the beetroots .Peel them with bare hands after washing them in tap water to cool them.

Chop them into half inch sizes.Keep aside.In a pan heat oil.Add mustard seeds.When they splutter add urad dal.Let the urad dal turn golden brown.Add finely chopped green chilly & kadipatta.Saute them both in the oil.Now add the chopped beetroot & saute them for 1-2 minutes.Cook covered with a lid for 5 minutes.If the veggies is still hard -check by a knife by trying to poke into the veggie ) ,add a little water & cook for some more time.Add salt & mix nicely.In the end add fresh coconut & cook for 2 minutes.Put off the gas.Serve with chappatis or rice.
