Beetroot Kichadi

Have you seen my post for Vendakka Kichadi. Beetroot recipe is very similar. Kichadi is a dish made in Kerala that is nothing but a kind of raita. This has been sitting in my draft for some time. Never got to posting it. But when I saw the event Show me your HITS was themed Beets and Carrots, I knew there is no better time to post this recipe than now :-) So here you go.


Beetroot 1/2 cup
Coconut 1/4 cup
Green Chilli 1
Curry Leaves few
Jeera 1/2 tsp
Yogurt/Curd 1 cup

Mustard 1/2 tsp
Curry Leaves few
Red Chilli 1

Oil and salt to taste

Method of Preparation

1. Grate the beetroot in small size grater.

2. Heat a little oil in a pan and add the mustard.

3. When it sputters, add the curry leaves and red chilli.

4. When it sizzles, add the grated beetroot and saute for a couple of minutes.

5. Transfer to a bowl and let it cool.

6. In the meanwhile, grind coconut, curry leaves, green chilli and jeera into a fine paste adding enough water. 

7. Pour this into the cooled beetroot. 

8. Add some salt and yogurt and mix well. 

Beetroot Kichadi (Beetroot raita) is ready to be served.
