Love the sweetness of Beetroots and would normally have them boiled in salad. But recently I started making curries out of it and loved it. After some trials and errors we loved this one. Hope you guys enjoy it too

1 cup beetroot, cut into small cubes
1 onion, chopped
1/4 cup pureed tomato
10 curry leaves
1 inch ginger, grated
1/2 cup curds
1 tsp coriander powder
1/2 tsp red chili powder
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
salt to taste
coriander leaves for garnish


  1. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a pressure cooker. Add the curry leaves. Add the onions and cook till they are translucent.
  2. Add coriander powder, red chili powder and turmeric powder. Cook for a minute.
  3. Add ginger and tomatoes and cook till the oil separates.
  4. Beat the curds well and add it to the pressure cooker.
  5. Add the beetroot, salt and 1/2 cup water.
  6. Give 2 whistles. Let the pressure release.
  7. Garnish with coriander leaves and serve with puris or roti.
