Beet saag

Beetroot - I separate the beet root from the leaves and pressure cook it with some water upto 5 whistles. Once the pressure cooker has cooled down, you open it and peel the skin, rest is all edible, slice and eat.

Beetroot RAW - You can peel the skin and grate beetroot raw and serve as a salad.

Beetroot greens - This is a good recipe, it has 5 ingredients and you will love it!


Beetroot leaves from 3 beets, so about 3 cups of beetroot leaves, chopped
2 dried red chilies
3 garlic cloves, chopped OPTIONAL
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
2 tablespoons oil
Salt to taste (1 teaspoon approximately)


In a small saute pan, heat oil over medium heat, and when the oil is hot, add cumin seeds and dry red chilies. Saute for a minute.
Add greens and salt and saute for 5-7 minutes, stirring every minute. When the greens have cooked down, puree this in a blender, you may need to add half a cup of water to get the blender going.
Serve with Indian bread.]]>
