Beetroot Kurma

                                                 Beetroot is one vegetable that we are all very fornd of, but i have seen many of them do not prefer beetroot.We make curry(poriyal),put it in sambar,kootu,salad and of course the ABC juice.I always pick up a few beets while buying vegetables.After trying out the familiar dishes i wanted to make something new specially to go with chapathis because i really run out of choices of subzis for chathis often.I was searching the net and found this beetroot kurma in few blogs,then i tried it out immediately.It is actually kurma with lots of beets and it was yumm with the phulkas.
