Beetroot is packed with nutrients like Vitamin C , B6 and Folic acid. I had one beetroot lying in my fridge from two days and I was thinking what to do with it .Yesterday when I prepared Veg Pulav , it came up in my mind to make this Raita as the Pulav is a bit spicy and beetroot Raita is perfect to balance it. A very common South Indian yoghurt preparation that is super tasty and healthy , best served with Pulav , Biryani and hot Chapatis. So let’s start the recipe.yum
2 cup Yoghurt / curd
1/2 cup beetroot , grated
Salt to taste
1/2 teaspoon vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds
1 teaspoon coriander/curry leaves
1 whole dried red chilly , broken
Beat yoghurt with salt in a bowl.
Add grated beetroot and mix well
Heat oil in a pan , add mustard seeds , red chilly , and curry leaves . Stir in and remove from heat.
Pour this tempering over yoghurt. Mix well.
Chill in refrigerator for 10 minutes before serving.
Serve chilled with main course.
Serve-3 . Prep time-10 minutes
Note: You may add chopped beetroot instead of grated.
You may also use boiled and chopped beetroot but I prefer the raw one.
