Beetroot plant and curry

Beetroot plants grown from a seed make beautiful border plants that are edible.
It is easy to care for these and can also be planted on pots after frost.

The flowers grown beside are marigold.

to make the curry
1 1/2 cups beetroot cut
2 tbsp oil
2 tbsp onion
1/4 tsp mustard seeds optional
1/2 tsp chillie powder adjust to taste
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1/4 tsp garam masala or cumin seeds ground
1/2 tsp salt to taste
1 cup of beetroot leaves chopped can be tossed in with this

Cut the beetroot into matchsticks or small.
Heat oil add mustard seeds if using then sauté the onion and then add the beetroot with spices. Cook covered on low heat till it is soft. If adding beet leaves add halfway which is about 5 to 8 minutes into cooking.

Here is another recipe for beetroots. These beetroot sandwich that are perfect finger food for snacks and parties.
