Beetroot and Potato Masala


Ingredients : (Serves 2)

2 Beetroots

2 Potatoes

1 Onion chopped into medium sized pieces

1 sprig of Curry Leaves

1 teaspoon Mustard

1 teaspoon coriander powder

1 teaspoon red chilli powder

1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder

1 tablespoon oil

Salt according to taste

Procedure :

  • Cut and boil the potatoes and beetroots separately in a pressure cooker. Ensure that they do not get mashed and also see to it that they are not too firm. I cook them for 2 whistles each in the cooker.
  • Heat oil in a skillet and throw in the mustard and coriander leaves.
  • When the mustard splutters, add the chopped onions.
  • When the onion turns translucent, add the masala powders (turmeric, chilli powder, coriander powder). Also add salt. Cook till the raw small of the masala is lost.
  • Now add the cooked potato and beetroot. Cook for 2-3 minutes and turn off the gas.
