Beetroot Spicy Curry Recipe:
(Serves 2)

Ingredients:
2 medium Beetroots
1 tbsp roasted(fried) Gram powder(chutney dalia)
2 Red chillies,broken
a sprig of Curry leaves
2 tsp Chana dal
1 tsp Urad dal
1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
1-2 tbsp Oil
Salt to taste

Method:
  • Wash,peel and cut the beetroot into tiny cubes or small pieces or cut into thin lengthy pieces.
  • Heat oil in a thick bottomed kadai/pan and crackle mustard seeds.
  • Add Chana dal and urad dal and fry until they turn in red color.
  • Add broken red chillies and curry leaves and fry them until they turn crisp.
  • Now add chopped beetroot pieces and fry or 2 mins.
  • Add 2-3 tbsp of water and cover it and cook for 7-8 mins until the beetroot is soft and cooked.If it is not cooked cook for another few mins,add few tbsp of water if required
  • Remove the lid and increase the flame and cook until the moisture is evaporated.
  • Add salt,vangibath powder and mix well and cook for another 2 mins on low flame.
  • Now add roasted gram powder to it and give a nice stir and remove it from flame immediately.
Serve it hot with Rice/Roti/Chapati.

Notes:
  1. You can follow the same process for vegetables like Carrots, Broadbeans(chikkudukaya), French beans, Long beans, Cluster beans, Potatoes etc.You need to adjust the cooking time accordingly.
  2. If you do not have Vangibath powder,you can add normal chili powder along with roasted gram powder in the recipe.
  3. Beetroot pieces can be steamed ahead and add to the tempering and add the powders at the end.
  4. You can add 1 tbsp of dry coconut powder at the end,as my vangibath powder has that I did not add it extra.But even if you add extra it adds a nice taste to the curry.
