The Amazing Beet
Simple but spectacular seasonal recipes
This week, as part of my South Indian home cooking series, I showcase two wildly flavorful and versatile beet(root) recipes that my parents often make at home.
Beet Chutney (click link to view recipe and download recipe card)
While it is unquestionably a nutritional powerhouse, I've never been a fan of the light sweetness in a beet. But add some heat and now we're talking!
This beet chutney is so easy to make and drop-dead gorgeous, the color of a Kanjeevaram saree. Bring a pop of color and oodles of flavor to any sandwich, wrap or cheese plate!
Beet & Chana stir-fry (click link to view recipe and download recipe card)
A no-fuss, seasonal curry you can rustle up using a lonely beet and a can of chickpeas from your pantry! The chickpeas get a lovely pink hue from the beet and the whole thing is just so darned flavorful. Serve over greens or cauliflower rice. And psst. there's a Rasam post coming next week that will pair wonderfully with this stir-fry.
