Boiled Beetroot Salad
My favourite salad. My children love this a lot. A simple, tasty salad which can be whipped up in a jiffy. Very few ingredients only. Goes well with pulao, jeera rice and a raitha. A totally refreshing taste which will give you instant energy.
Beetroot – 2 ( wash and pressure cook the Beetroot in sufficient water for 5 whistles and keep it on 5 minutes on sim flame and switch off the stove. Cool well. Open the cooker and take out the boiled Beetroot. Cool well. When it is hot, it is very difficult to handle the Beetroot. Once cooled, peel the Beetroot and slice it. Keep it aside till the time of use. )
Salt to taste
Lemon juice – 1 tablespoon
Finely chopped green chilli – 1 pinch
Take a big bowl. Put in all the above mentioned ingredients. Toss well. Rest for 3 minutes. Serve.
1) Do not add more green chillies than the mentioned amount. It will become very spicy.
2) Do not add any other spices. The taste will change.
3) Keep all the above mentioned ingredients separately. Mix it at the time of serving. Do not add the green chillies earlier. The green colour will change.
