Beetroot is detested by many. I know of people who think beetroot is a vegetable which other than a salad cannot be of any other use.. They are wrong. This healthy vegetable has loads of uses along with the various recipes you can use it in.
This recipe uses, boiled Beetroot, chopped onions & green chilli’s in yogurt, garnished with chopped coriander and served chilled. Sounds interesting & yummy, it sure does to me if I had not eaten this before & I had just read the description I would sure have been waiting to try it out.
This is one of my personal favourites. Beetroot being one of my favourite vegetables may be the reason. A winner again among my family and relatives. I learnt this recipe from one of my aunts who lives in Mumbai (Bombay, India).
