Beetroot thoran


My today's recipe is a simple and colorful thoran made with beetroot.Beetroot is also known as table beet,garden beet or red beet. Here comes the recipe..:)

Ingredients 

Beetroot ~ 2 nos ( Medium sized ) / Grated beetroot ~ 2 cups
Grated coconut ~ 3/4 cup
Green chillies ~ 6 nos
Garlic ~ 3-4 cloves
Turmeric powder ~ 1/4 tsp
Red chilly powder ~ 1/8 tsp
Cumin seeds / Jeerakam ~ 1/4 tsp
Mustard seeds / Kaduku ~ 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves ~ 1 stem
Dry red chillies ~ 2 nos
Oil
Salt to taste

Method

  • First wash and cut off the edge of beetroot and then peel its skin using a peeler. Next grate it using a grater / shredder and keep it aside.
  • Then grind coarsely grated coconut, green chillies, turmeric powder, red chilly powder, cumin seeds and garlic using a mixer grinder by adding 1-2 tsps of water.
  • Next heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds, followed by curry leaves and dry red chillies. When the mustard seeds start to crackle, add ground coconut paste and keep on frying it in a low flame for about 1 minute. Then add grated beetroot along with enough salt and let it cook covered in a low flame for about 8-10 minutes and finally cook it uncovered for another 5-6 minutes and then remove from the flame. 

Cheers!!
