Beetroot Rice

How many people recollect those days when your mom is running behind you for making you eat beet? I always used to run away from this vegetable. But my mom never gave up. She used to make variety of dishes with Beet and we ended up loving this vegetable. Hats off to my mom's patience. I am glad that I don't have to run behind my daughter.

Here is one of the recipe from my mom's collection. Simple yet delicious.

2 beet finely chopped
1 tomato
1 small sized onion
2 tsp ginger garlic paste
4 cloves
1/2 inch cinnamon stick
4 green chilies
1/2 bunch coriander leaves
1 tsp masala powder
2 tbsp oil
