Beetroot Chutney Version 2

After the success of my Beetroot Chutney, I decided to try a different version. This, however, is a little more elaborate than the earlier one.


1 large beetroot, sliced
3 green chillies
3 pods of garlic
1 Onion
Salt to taste

For the Tempering
1 tsp Oil
1/4 tsp Mustard Seeds
1/4 tsp Asafoetida
4-5 Curry Leaves

I cooked the beetroot slices in the microwave for 2-3 minutes with very little water. I ground this with all the ingredients together. In a pan, I prepared the tempering and added the beetroot paste. I cooked this for 2-3 minutes and the resultant mixture was a little dry.
We ate this with rice and it tasted absolutely yummy.
