Beetroot Stir Fry / Beetroot poriyal

Posted by

Beetroot is good for health. As a matter of fact all vegetables are good for health as long as the recipe doesnt call for deep frying. Vegetables are a must in our house even if its with any non vegetarian meals – lunch especially. So usually its a fish on the side most days of the week with any stir fried vegetables dearly called poriyals, or vegetable curries (dearly called kootu, off course) and salads depending on whats available. This is a simple side dish that is served as an accompaniment to rice.

Oil : 2 tsp

Mustard : 1/2 tsp

Urad Dal (whole) : 2 tsp

Curry leaves : few

Onion : 1 small
