Beet root curry

I make beet root curries in tww different ways.One with coconut and other with potato which sometimes even goes with chapati because it is a little spicy and with potato of course.The only difference is the coconut.If you want to avoid the coconut you can dice a potato and do it the same way.have a look at both the pictures.
