Carrot Beetroot Poriyal Recipe

Carrot Beetroot poriyal is one of the healthiest and yummy side dish for any rice dishes. I have seen may kids hate beetroot because of its color, but my daughter simply love beetroot than any other veggie. So I often do beetroot poriyal. She loves to mix the poriyal with the rice and ghee. I often combine carrot and beetroot to make the poriyal more healthier.

I prefer to add a teaspoon of grated coconut which enhances the flavor and taste of the poriyal. But you can very much skip the addition of the coconut if you prefer to have more 'health friendly' recipe.

  2. Add the chopped beetroot and carrot along with salt and turmeric powder and stir-fry in high flame for couple of minutes. Sprinkle some water to cook the carrot and beetroot. Do not add too much water as the beetroot itself will release some water while cooking

  4. When the carrot and beetroot are fully cooked, add grated coconut and mix well. Keep the poriyal in flame for another couple of minutes and then remove from flame
