Beetroot Side Dish/ Beetroot Upkari

Beetroot is a very delicious vegetable. I like to eat it raw. I often prepare this as a simple sabji or with dal. I love to have this either with "dalitoy" (konkani dal) or with curd rice. A simple and tasty upkari and morever I just love the color of this vegetable.

1 beetroot, slit
1/4 mustard seeds
4-5 curry leaves
3 red chillies
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 cup water
3 tablespoon grated coconut (fresh or frozen)

Wash, peel and cut beetroot into thin slits.
Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds, chillies and curry leaves.
When mustard seeds starts spluttering add beetroot and fry for 2-3 mins.
Add water and simmer it until beetroot is completely cooked.
Add salt and grated coconut.
Serve hot with rice.

Serves: 2
Preparation Time: 25 mins
