Beet bunch (Beet root with greens) is always a must buy item in my shopping list, whenever I visit the Farm Market. My farm market has them always fresh, that I buy beet root as a bunch and not loose. Apart from making curries and gravies using beet root, I also use the Beet greens in my dishes. I usually add beet greens with spinach in most of my cooking. This time I tried making this curry and believe me it was so good. Especially, adding black pepper to the curry gave a very good taste!

Coming to the recipe,

Ingredients:
  • Beet Greens - 1 bunch
  • Carrots - 3
  • Oil - 2 tsp
  • Mustard Seeds - 1/2 tsp
  • Urad dal - 1/2 tsp
  • Asafoetida - a pinch
Dry roast and grind:
  • Black pepper - 1/2 tsp
  • Corriander seeds - 1 tsp
  • Channa dal - 1/2 tsp
  • Red chillies - 2 or 3
How to make it:
Wash and chop beet greens. Chop carrots into small pieces. Heat oil in a pan, add mustard seeds and when it splutters, add urad dal. Add carrots and cook until carrots are half done. Add the chopped beet greens, asafoetida and salt. Cook for 2 mins. Sprinkle some water if required. Add the ground powder and mix well.
