Beetroot kosumbari

Beetroot kosumbari is a healthy salad served with the main course.Beetroot is very good for health especially to boost the hemoglobin level.It is said that it is our Liver's best friend.It is a super storehouse of iron and Vitamin C.Coming back to the recipe I adapted this recipe from Santoshi and is one of my personal favourite salad.

Green chilly-1
Mustard seeds-1/4 tsp
Curry leaves-1 sprig
Coriander leaves-1 tsp to garnish
Lemon-1/4 (juice)
Grated coconut-2 tsp(optional)

  1. Wash ,peel and cut the beetroot into 4 pieces and put it in a bowl.
  2. Take a pressure cooker with lil water and keep the bowl with beetroot inside it.
  3. Take a whistle and switch off the flame.
  4. Once the pressure releases,open the lid,cool the beetroot and then grate it.
  5. Heat oil in a small seasoning pan,splutter mustard seeds,add curry leaves and season it to the beetroot.
