Beetroot Achaar (Beetroot Pickle)
In North Kerala there are two typical pickles quite differently prepared from the rest of Kerala. One is dates pickle and the other beetroot pickle. You find this in any store there and they complement a spicy biriyani with raita quite well. So inspired from a trip to North Kerala sometime back, I decided to make some beetroot pickle when I got some freshly harvested beets. I did not let this pickle rest and made a very small quantity so it was a bit crunchy, if you however, let it rest it will be softer.
