Beetroot Poriyal | Beetroot Thoran | Beetroot Stirfry Recipe

Beetroot Poriyal or Beetroot Thoran is one of most easy beetroot recipe, it's a simple stir fry with minimal ingredients which can be done in a jiffy, other than the beetroot grating part it's very easy to prepare. We love beetroot so much that there's always beetroot stocked up in my pantry and most of the time I make this beetroot stir fry or simply the beetroot dal, the most easy way to include beets in our diet.

This beetroot poriyal works great a side with rice sambar, rasam or even dal. But personally I like to eat plain steamed rice with this poriyal and relish it to most, it's my favourite combo which I can eat every day. Beetroot is one the wonder vegetable but lot of people don't eat beetroot and doesn't know the numerous benefits this number vegetable offers.


There's never late to try this vegetable and it's so colorful and pretty, you should try it if you don't eat beetroot. Try this poriyal and you will like it too.
