Winter is the perfect time to enjoy the glorious winter-special vegetable of beetroot (chakundar). This vegetable is valued for its high antioxidant value and iron content. Beets are often tossed in a blender to make vegetable juice or tossed in a bowl of salad. But we all crave hot food with the limited winter products; so we decided to have this nutrient dense vegetable in the form of a hot curry. Nothing beats the classic Indian dish of roti and sabzi. This curry made with beetroot offers a great change in flavor that will surprise you. It’s called beetroot kurma.
Beetroot kurma not only provides the many nutritional qualities of beetroot, but also adds extra nutrients from the protein-rich chana valley and high-fiber grated coconut. Of course, this is not the only set of nutrients you get from this combination. All of these three foods – beetroot, chana dal and coconut – offer much, much more.
A warming, comforting, attractive and healthy dish that can be easily made in no time – is it not perfect for all those lazy evenings where it seems impossible to make a hearty dinner? Yes, this beetroot kurma can be made in less than 30 minutes, which is why we bookmark this recipe for our many winter cold cuts.
