Beetroot poriyal, a healthy thoran / poriyal as an accompaniment for any rice varieties. Packed with essential nutrients, beetroots are a great source of fiber. Beetroots are delicious raw but more frequently cooked or pickled. Their leaves, known as beet greens — can also be eaten. We can cook beetroot in different ways. The color and their sweet taste usually being liked by many of us, especially kids.
We can make many awesome recipes with beetroot. I have already published Beetroot Rasam, Beetroot Thogayal, Beetroot Kurma, Beet Pulao, Red Velvet Cake using Beetroot, Beetroot Halwa, Apple Beetroot, carrot Juice .
Is there a difference between this Beetroot Thoran and our usual South Indian Poriyal Varieties?
Yes, there is a slight difference in spicing up the poriyal. For normal Tamilnadu Poriyal, we will first cook the vegetable, toss it in the tempering of mustard, red /green chili, split urad dal and finally garnish with freshly grated coconut. Here, in Thoran, we are going to grind coconut, green chili and cumin without adding water and add it to this thoran. The ground coconut-chili powder adds a very nice flavor to this thoran!
