Beet root Dal fry

Hi Readers,

As we all know beet root is very nutritious , but having beet root in only salad is not adequate. So, this is a dish that not only provides the healthy beet root in your dish , but also blends flavor to it. There are some common beet root dishes that is usually made in South India. This is one among them which I like the most.

Ingredients :-  1- 1 beet root chopped thinly
2- 100 gm Masoor dal/ red lentils
3- 1 onion chopped
4- 3 flakes of garlic chopped
5- 1 tomato chopped
6- 1 green chili chopped
7- pinch of asfoetida
8- pinch of turmeric
9- 1 tbsp oil
10- salt to taste
11- cumin seeds, mustard seeds - 1 tbsp

Method :-  In a pressure cooker add the lentil, beet root, turmeric, salt and water. Cook over low flame till 2 whistles. Remove from flame. In another pan, add oil, add cumin and mustard seeds. When it stars cracking add onion, garlic, tomato and asfoetida. Cook till onion is translucent and add the dal to it. Serve hot with rice.
