Beet Peas Curry

Yesterday, Kalva of Curry in Kadai posted a spicy beet and peas curry and i was too tempted to try it out. Thanks Kalva for the super idea. So, here it is in my style made in microwave.
Ingredients (Translation)

1/4 Kg beetroot
1/2 cup peas
Salt to taste
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
1/2 tsp bengalgram dal
1/2 tsp blackgram dal
1 tsp oil
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
Few curry leaves
1 tsp Masala powder
Grated Coconut as per taste

Peel the skin and cut the beetroot into small pieces. Micro high in a microwave safe bowl with water just enough to dip the beetroot for 10 minutes.

Add little more water if required and micro high for another 5 minutes. Add the peas and micro high for 3 more minutes. The water should be fully absorbed.

In a seperate microwave safe bowl, add the oil, mustard seeds, bengalgram dal and blackgram dal and micro high for 1 minute. Add the curry leaves, turmeric powder, cooked beet and peas, coconut, salt and masala powder and mix well. Micro high for another 1 minute.

Tasty beet and peas curry is ready.

hey easy craft, microwave specialist, what are ur thoughts about using mw frequently esp while we are pregnant?..spending more time around it??

easycrafts said...

Thanks Srivalli

Ya, to retain the colour of the peas, i added it in the end Viji

@ Kitchen Scientist... As far as i know, using microwave less would be better during pregnancy due to the emission of radiation waves from the microwave.

I love Beetroot as a side dish and this looks like a great idea as we also eat peas quite often. Thanks for sharing:-)
