Beetroot Stir-Fry

Today I am featuring a basic recipe to show you how Beetroot gets cooked in Indian's Kitchen. We prefer to boil it slightly and stir fry it along with some garlic, spices and coconut to compliment it's sweetness. We usually eat this curry with rice or roti. When you mix it with rice, it gives a nice pink color to it which excites my daughter always whenever i make this curry. (Oh Did I say Pink!! Pink and daughters will go well together won't they... :-) ). Sometimes I do make exquisite dishes with it like Beetroot Pulao, but most of the times this is a everyday recipe that happens at least once in fort-night in our house. Here is the recipe, Enjoy it!
