Beetroot Saasmi

We always get this feeling that there is not much we can do with beetroot. Here is a very unique beetroot recipe from Udipi that uses mustard, coconut and yogurt and can be prepared pretty easily.

Recipe Source : Mother

Serves : 5

Prep time : 15 minutes 

Cooking time : 5 minutes

Ingredients :

250 grams beetroot (cubed and boiled)
2 red chillies
¼ cup coconut
1 teaspoon mustard seeds
2 cups curd/yogurt
Water (as required)
1 teaspoon oil
1 teaspoon mustard seeds
1 teaspoon urad dal
10-12 curry leaves

Method :

1. Grind the coconut, red chillies and mustard seeds in a blender and keep it aside.

2. Take yogurt/curd in a bowl, add salt and water based on your requirement and whisk thoroughly.

3. Add the yogurt mixture and coconut mixture to the beetroot and mix well.
Heat oil in a small pan. Add mustard seeds, urad dal and hing. When the mustard seeds start spluttering, add curry leaves.

4. Add this to the Saasmi and serve with steamed rice.

Note :

1.You can also make this with cucumber. You don't have to boil the cucumber.
2. You can add a gooseberry sized tamarind to the coconut, mustard paste while grinding instead of yogurt.
3. You can use grated beetroot instead of chopped beetroot.
