Like I have mentioned in my previous recipes, beetroot is such an underrated and underutilised vegetable. It has very many nutrition qualities associated with it. If you like sambar/huLi then you must try this beetroot sambar.
Beetroot renders a deep burgundy colour to this sambar making it extra special compared to regular brownish looking sambars. Beetroot is one of those vegetables which bleeds its colour to everything it touches. But it does good. ... “Beetroot Sambar | Beetroot huLi | Beetroot Recipes”

Saasme or raitha is one common dish I make with any South Indian meal like this beetroot raitha, carrot saasme, sorekayi (lauki) saasme etc. After a hearty lunch with hot and spicy sambar, huLi, saaru, kootu or rasam you will need something to cool things off. Plain yogurt does the trick most of the times.
A very good way of consuming more vegetables is to mix it with yogurt/curd to make a raitha. This beetroot raitha or saasme is a very good way of consuming this bright yet humble vegetable. ... “Beetroot Saasme | Beetroot Raitha | Raitha Recipes”

Any part of a vegetable that is edible should be consumed in its organic form. Discarding good quality ingredients like stalks, peels, clean shoots or roots is probably a sin against Mother Nature and farmers. Consuming vegetables, fruits and greens in their purest organic form is the best way of eating them. Try to convert simple ingredients into nice, tasty and fancy eatables like the one here with beetroot and potato peels. Use organic ones and rinse them beforehand. These crisps will disappear in a jiffy and they are ready in a few minutes. Try other potato and beetroot recipes so you get to make these crisps by saving the peels! These are also a healthy alternative to deep fried, oversalted chips. ... “Beetroot and Potato Peel Crisps”
