Beetroot Podtuval

After quite a buzy week and a lovely extended weekend , I have just mustered time to post a quicky recipe.. I havent caught up with blog posts for the last 5 days.. I m sure to make up for all the missing ones before the easter long weekend!! We had our day light savings taken off finally and our schedules are all lagging behind by 1 hour :))
Today's post is a simple Beetroot Curry . We call it as Beetroot Podtuval. This is very much a palakad version and very quicky. Not much of a hazzle.This vegie has such a strong color that we are sure to get our hands dyed... while chopping them raw..
My aunt had asked me to cook the vegetable in the cooker and then chop it. Believe me .. We hardly get the color on our hands.. and even if u have a bit of it... It gets cleared with a hand wash without much hosh posh.

Freshly grated coconut1/4th Cup
