Beetroots are packed with many nutrients and is a natural blood purifier. It is good to include it in our diet once in a week. I prepare this poriyal often in my house. It is a very simple stir fry which goes well with rice. Today we will learn how to make beetroot stir fry/poriyal following this easy recipe.

Slit green chilli and keep it aside.
Heat 2 tsp of oil in a pan or kadai, add mustard seeds, when it splutters, add urad dal and hing.
When urad dal turns golden brown, add green chillies and curry leaves.
Then add the chopped or grated beetroot and salt needed. Cook covered on low heat, stirring from time to time until beetroots become tender. You can sprinkle water in between to prevent it for getting burnt.
