Beetroot chutney

Beetroot is a wonderful vegetable which increases blood flow and it contains beta carotine. That said its really difficult to get my daughter to eat beetroot. I have to come up with creative ways to include beets in different recipes. My mom used to make beetroot chutney and I remember that we used to like it. I made this chutney and to my amazement my daughter asked for a second helping.
I am pretty sure that your kids would love this too.
