Beetroot Poriyal

We all know the importance of beetroot in our diet. However, i dont like beetroot mainly because of its colour and secondly, it reminds me of something. So, I thought, instead of making a salad, why not try something new that may awaken my tastebuds. This is the easiest and healthiest recipe so far. Below is the image of Beetroot poriyal prepared by me. If you find it interesting then scroll down for the recipe.
