Pretty in Pink

Now you could debate on whether beetroot is deep red or magenta or pink or any other fancy color..all that matters is it looks beautiful! Here's a very simple tasty side-dish recipe that will add a splash of color to the table.

Beetroot Koshimbir (Salad)


2-3 Beets
1 Cup yogurt
1-2 Green chilies - chopped
Chopped cilantro
1/2 Teaspoon sugar

  • Clean the beets well and cook them in boiling water until you can poke a knife into them easily. I usually use a pressure cooker for faster cooking (2-3 whistles). Once they are cool enough to touch, peel the beets. The skin comes off very easily without a peeler. Cut them in small cubes.
  • Add yogurt, chilies, cilantro, a little bit of sugar (Beets are naturally sweet but a bit of sugar brings out the sweetness) and some salt for taste. Mix well.
  • Garnish with some more cilantro and you are done. Simple as that!

I usually eat this with roti/rice but it tastes great by itself.
