My life would have been so much easier if chocolate chip cookies had been beneficial to our health compared to say, slices of beetroot. Don't get me wrong here. I absolutely enjoy every bit of my fun filled life..........until it comes to making Pratik eat beetroot. Yep, his dislike for them matches only to my dislike for crows! I have come up with so many beetroot recipes to date that my brain has given up on ideas. None of them have worked so far!
4 medium cooked beetroots, cubed
1 yellow onion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, grated
1 tbs olive oil
1 tsp turmeric
1 tsp ground fennel
2 tsp curry powder
1/2 cup whey or vegetable stock
1/2 cups coconut milk
1-2 tbs lemon juice
Cilantro for garnish
Heat the olive oil in a saute pan. Add the onions and garlic, ground fennel, turmeric & curry powder. Saute for 2-3 minutes.
Add the cubed beetroots and mix well. Add whey or vegetable stock and simmer until reduced by half. Add the coconut milk and simmer again for 5-7 minutes.
Add salt and lemon juice and mix well.
Serve warm as a side. Garnish with cilantro.
I am sending this recipe to Sunita for her wonderful "Think spice" event. I hope the fennel spices up your event anniversary menu.
