Beetroot Stir Fry

Beetroot stir fry – a simple South Indian style sabzi.

Beetroot is known to have multiple  health benefits. It is an excellent source of iron, rich in antioxidants and is great for maintaining hemoglobin levels. Hence, it is advisable to add beetroot to our diet. There are many ways in which beetroot can be included in our diet. They can be used to make sabzis, parathas, dosas, salads, raitas, rasams, juices, falafel, hummus and so on.
