Thanks for this post.

Beetroot chutney is one of my favourites, and my mom made it often.

Sometimes when beetroot poriyal (side dish) was left over, we would make chutney from it.

I remember my mom also adds urad dal to the fry, so that when it is ground, you get a diffferent taste.

I love to eat dosa with beetroot chutney and a little curd by the side...just awesome!!
