May I introduce you to my new favorite way of eating beetroot? It’s this beauty right down here, in the form of curry that has no coconut and no lentils. Sounds weird?? But it’s super delicious and YUM. And that is the reason amidst all the awesome Diwali goodies, this gorgeous purple beetroot curry couldn’t resist itself from being posted here.
This no coconut beetroot curry is the one you want to make when it’s starting to get dark earlier and earlier, and you are on your way home after a long day, wondering how it can already be dark at 6pm and where in the world did summer go fast. And you have no enough energy left in yourself at least for a simple meal of rice and curry even, go for this simple no coconut, no lentil beetroot curry. Dinner plates would be licked clean and you look for the left overs to hide in the fridge because it can accompany the breakfast as well.
In a nutshell, I will be calling this beetroot curry as bachelor version as no hassle of cooking lentils and grinding coconut only thing that one has to do is chopping the veggies. Beetroot, beans and onion are the three basic vegetables that go well with the recipe, but I have plans to try other variations too.
The vegetables chopped in strips are sauteed well in seasoning which has little more oil than usual and they get cooked halfway to a nice crisp perfection. The curry completes when vegetables get cooked till soft and pulpy with spices sprinkled over.
After this awesome deliciousness, my beetroots no longer wait in pantry till they get wrinkles all over. Because I crave for this no coconut beetroot curry every day and every meal. Even those beetroot haters can turn around and love the veggie as this curry has that magic.
Thanks to my brother-in-law who is the recipe source and who narrated it so well months ago and I could recall it even now.
