Beetroot stir fry is a simple, healthy and tasty side dish from South Indian cuisine. It pairs well with chapati or phulka.

Beetroot is a wonderful vegetable .The vibrant  purple colour is very pleasing. I really love that colour. Dark coloured vegetables are all rich in nutrients and so is this one. It is rich in calcium, iron, Viamin A and C and packed with anti oxidants.

It is good for the heart and lowers the blood pressure. It is said to prevent some types of cancer. It helps in the functioning of the brain and thus helps in preventing dementia. It is rich in fibre and thus helps in keeping the body clean.

One can find many ways to include this vegetable.Many people drink juice of it. It can be used in vegetables, soups and varied snacks as cutlets and burgers. Today, I am presenting to you a simple vegetable which is healthy and can be quickly prepared.

This  vegetable is liked by my children sans fresh coconut, but do feel free to include it for a better taste.

    I’m a huge fan of beetroot so am sure that I’d love this beetroot stir fry. I would add coconut and make it a meal on its own.
