Beetroot Channadal Stir-fry

Beetroot vegetable is a good tonic food for health. It contains carbohydrates, mainly in the form of sugar, and it has a little protein and fat. Beet is taken in a variety of ways. The skin should be removed before use. The leaves, like all green vegetables, should be cooked with a small amount of water and for only a short time. The fresher the beets, the better the flavour and the quicker they cook. It contains sodium, potassium, phosphorus, calcium, sulphur, chlorine, iodine, iron, copper, vitamin B1, B2, C and P. The cellulose content of the beet acts as a bulk residue, increases peristalsis. Its regular use thus prevents habitual constipation. A decoction of the beet root is highly valuable in chronic constipation and haemorrhoids...This is simple stir fry usually i prepare at home, everyone at home love this..on the way to Eating with the Season event by Maninas...

This sounds really delicious, Priya. My beetroot veggie recipe is similar, but I don't use chana dal nor coriander powder. Have to try it your way next.
