My Notes:

  • Adding turmeric powder retains the bright red color.
  • Do not add more water,just sprinkle and cook covered to avoid the veggie becoming mushy.
  • Adding coconut oil gives a great flavour to the curry.
  • Adjust green chillies according to the sweetness of beets you are using.
  • I used thin grater, you can even chop it finely.
