I have been little gone for the past two weeks.Will blog often and this is what i cooked in the meantime.
I love beetroot for the color and also for the taste.And when it combines with coconut and cumin it gives a unique taste.Serve along with hot rice or chappati.Easy to prepare too.

Jeera :2 tsp
Red Chilli : 2
Salt : as per taste

For Tampering :
Mustard Seeds : 1tsp
Cumin Seeds : 2tsp
Curry Leaves : 5
Hing :a pinch

How to Make:
1.In a kadai, add the grated beetroot along with tamarind juice.
2.Add a little water and close the lid till the beetroot gets cooks.
3.Meanwhile grind the coconut,jeera  and red chilli by adding little water.
4.When the beetroot gets cooked,add the grounded paste and salt.
5.If you want the curry thin, add little water and bring to boil.
