Beetroot Channa Poriyal (beetroot Chickpeas Stir Fry)
Beetroot is often limited to salads or sambar maybe cutlet. But this recipe makes the beetroot a star. This vegetable is often avoided for the muddy flavour. But with the pairing with chickpeas and coconut and the spices, you would not mind having this stir fry. It was a favourite back in my hostel days and paired with some moru curry and rice this curry taste yummy. Beetroot is good for your heart and if you don't have it in your regular diet, you must find ways to have it. Even for kids, introducing beetroot at a young age will ensure they don't neglect this vegetable. I mash this curry and feed it to my daughter with some curd rice; she loves the pink colour it gives to the rice and so happily has it without any fuss.
