Beetroot Poriyal | Tam Brahm Style Beetroot Stir Fry | Gluten Free and Vegan

Beetroot Poriyal

Hi Supermoms,

Juicy Beetroots are in season now and I am using them to the fullest. Beetroot is filled with anti-oxidants and helps build immunity. The vibrant colour of beetroot is not only a treat to the eyes, but is so beneficial for our over all health. 

I often make 'Poriyal'/ stir fries using beetroot. Finely chopping the beetroot and adding freshly grated coconut adds to the taste of the poriyal. 

You can boil the beetroot in an open pot/vessel and use the water/vegetable stock to make Beetroot Rasam

A quick, simple and easy stir fry recipe that you can serve as a part of your lunch or dinner.
