Beetroot Subzi - As Easy As A-B-C




Beetroot - Keerai Poriyal:

No matter how tired you come home, its worth straining another 10 minutes in the kitchen to have an instant gratification with food. If my fridge is packed with fresh produce, I usually plan ahead for a week's menu, the inspiration comes from my mind whizzing ideas of playing with ingredients and tweaking the recipes. I know exactly how to lighten up the regular food, just pair it up with greens that lift the humble spirit to new heights.

Ingredients:

Beets 3 along with greens
Salt
Turmeric 1 pinch
Chili powder
Mustard seeds 1/4 spoon
Sesame oil few spoons.

Method:

Peel and chop the beets. Clean the greens with extra care, maybe several times in the running water. Then chop them down. Set aside.

In a wide wok, heat oil. Add mustard seeds and wait till it pops.

Now add the beets, cover and cook briefly for 2-4 minutes. Add enough salt, turmeric, chili powder and greens....stir-fry over high heat for 5-7 minutes. Once oil separates, remove from heat.

Serve warm to go with your steamed rice or rotis.
