Kumari’s (quick) beetroot (a side dish)

I saw her grating, stirring, tasting and serving – all in a few minutes. This was it.

  • green chili (as required), de-seeded and sliced OR one or two dried red chilies OR a dash of chili powder

  1. In a splash of oil, toss in the fresh chili or dried chili or chili powder, if using.
  2. Stir a bit and add chopped onion.
  3. Stir fry till the onion is translucent, add chopped tomatoes and continue stir frying.
  4. When a paste forms, add the beetroot, stir till just cooked, add salt.
