Beetroot is one of my favourite vegetables. The glamorous red colour is very tempting and so is its sweet taste. I add some pieces of beetroot wherever a little glamour is required to any dish! Like when I make tomato soup I add a few pieces of beetroot -The result is a wonderful red colored tomato soup, which will give all the synthetic colours a run for their money.
On a different note, I even made beetroot water for my son to celebrate this years Holi-his first Holi. A Natural and healthy way to enjoy the festival of colours!
I liked this recipe for two reasons ;One-The recipe includes cabbage too. I was bored of making the same old curries with cabbage and two-My husband is not very fond of beetroot by itself . But he loved this curry .Thanks Indira for that.
I have almost followed the original recipe with a few changes. I have used usual white cabbage instead of the purple/red cabbage that Indira used and brown Chana /gram (Harbara) instead of Red beans.
The result was a delicious ‘ruby red’-as Indira says and a nutritious curry.
