Beetroot Palya is prepared with grated beet, coconut, and minimal spices. It is a simple recipe, yet tasty and healthy. Goes great with phulka or rice along with sambar/korma.

How to make Beetroot Palya?

This palya can be prepared using chopped beets or grated. I have grated the beetroot as it cooks faster and adds a great flavor

.In a large pan, heat coconut oil, add mustard seeds, urad dal, let it splutter.

Add hing, cumin seeds, curry leaves, chillis ginger, and saute for a min

Add beetroot, tamarind pulp and give a quick mix.

Add 1/2 cup water, salt(jaggery can be added now, if needed).

Close the lid and cook under low flame until soft(takes around 10 mins). Stir occasionally

Add shredded coconut, coriander leaves and mix well.
