Beet Root & Potato Pepper Saute

Some might have a feeling that beet root is watery in taste. The addition of potatoes gives a creamy texture to this dish which goes well with rice. I usually prepare this in a pressure cooker so that the potatoes turn slightly mushy though they retain their shape. It can be prepared in a pan also.

the recipe

Beet root, cut into cubes of preferred size - 3 large
Potato, cut in similar size as the beetroot - 1 large
Onion, roughly chopped - 1
Chilly powder - 1/2 tsp
Pepper powder - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Salt to taste
Oil - 1 or 2 tbsp
Curry leaves

the method

Heat oil in a pressure cooker. Add the onion and stir till it is light brown. Turn to low heat and add the turmeric, pepper, chilly powder, salt and curry leaves. Stir till it is lightly sauteed and then add the cubed beet root and potato. Continue stirring in low heat for about a minute. Add 5 -8 tbsp water and put the lid and weight on. Pressure cook for 3 whistles and then turn off heat. You may find a little more water when the veggies have cooked. Place the pressure cooker on high heat and stir well till the water is fully evaporated. Serve with rice and rasam.
