This is a very nice curry, which can easily go along with rice as well as Chapathies. The red coloured vegetable Beetroot has amazing health benefits. I make it a point to add it in our diet atleast once a week. It keeps our blood sugar levels in control, is very good for treating anaemia, prevents bad cholesterol, very very good for expectant mothers, fights against Osteoporosis,, boosts a person's energy, is an antioxidant, beats constipation, and is considered to increase oxygen uptake by the body. Served with a mixed Veg Koottu and Brown Basmati, isn't this a great nutrition filled thaali meal???
