Pretty bright pink colored beetroot is not a favorite vegetable of my family, but when I see the fresh ones, cannot resist the urge to buy it. Health benefits of this veggie influences me to buy it intermittently though. Out of all dishes that I make using beetroot, best loved is beetroot chutney as a side dish to rice. Next comes this recipe, call it as beetroot pachadi or beetroot saasmi both are one and the same.
The gorgeous red beets are grated, then cooked for few minutes and then mixed with a coconut-mustard seeds paste to get this bright pink Beetroot Pachadi. This Beetroot Pachadi, popularly known in Udupi as Beetroot Saasmi is quite mild and has a light sweet taste to it due to the sweetness of beetroots. Tamarind and red chilly are used to give tangy and spicy note to it. Give this Beetroot Pachadi a try if you are looking for something different to serve with rice. It can also be served with dosa, idli or chapati.
Meet you all with one more interesting recipe. Till then bye.
