Beetroot Kootu /Coconut Curried Beets

A very colorful vegetable and highly photogenic is beetroot. Being a big fan of the beets at Sweet Tomatoes, a salad bar in town, I tend to pick up a bunch at the farmers market often. Made this kootu with the beets and enjoyed with some rice.





Gadgets:

Pan
Seasoning Wok
Spatula
Measuring Cups and Spoons

Ingredients:

Beets - 3 finely cubed
Water - Enough to cover the chopped beets plus 1 cup
Salt
Sambar Powder - 3/4 tsp
Asafoetida Powder- a few shakes
Kootu Podi - 2 tbsp
Mustard Seeds - 1/2 tsp
Coconut - 3 tbsp
Curry leaves - a few
Cumin Seeds - 1 tsp
Udad Dal - 2 tsp
Cooked Thoor Dhal - 2 ladles
Oil - 1 tbsp
Red Dry Chillies - 1


Preparation:

1. Add chopped beets, water, sambar powder, salt, asafoetida and cook the beets covered until the beets are fully cooked ( 10- 12 minutes).

2. Add cooked thoor dal, kootu podi  and mix well. If more water is required add 1/2 a cup.

3. In a seasoning wok heat the oil, add asafeotida, mustard seeds and allow for the seeds to pop. Once it starts to pop add udad dal, cumin seeds, dry chillies and toast. Add coconut and mix until it starts to toast. Remove from heat and add to the kootu.
