Beetroot Daal ~ Lentil Curry with Beets


As said umpteen times I like to make things simple, so here comes a simple Beetroot Daal.  I like beets but that's doesn't goes same with DH, he doesn't really like to eat Beetroot Fry.  So one day in hurry just added the beets to daal as I had to use the beets before it dies!  Much to my surprised he liked the daal so I tried this again and simply love this daal, doesn't it looks pretty :) 




Ingredients:

Pigeon Peas/ Toor Daal - 1 cup
Beetroot - 1  [ medium]
Onion - 1 [Large]
Tomato - 1 [Medium]
Green Chiles - 3
Cilantro- 2 tbsp [chopped]

Turmeric Powder - 1/2 tsp [optional]
Cumin Seeds - 1/2 tsp
Garlic - 3 pods [big]

Method:

1. Wash and soak the daal for 1 half or less than that [soaking is optional]

2. Wash, peel and chop beetroot in medium size pieces. 


3.  Cook beetroot and daal with 1 1/2cup or 2 cups of water for 3-4 whistles or normally how you cook your daal.
