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.

  3. You can try carrot chutney also in similar lines.. i never grinded carrot but only grated it, grind the other ingredients along with some garlic cloves. Add few more dals to the seasoning and rest of the process is same. Finally add lemon juice.
