Carrot Beetroot Chutney, Soup: Instant Recipe for Beginners

I rarely bring beetroot home, as it tends to raise histamine in people with allergies. However, I was tempted to bring it this time for mom dear, as beetroot is packed with antioxidants and can help improve hemoglobin. This post gets inspiration from Deepti Aggarwal's carrot beetroot chutney. I have modified the beet chutney recipe to present to you a simple, instant recipe for beginners.
This is a must try for beet lovers! 

Beetroot benefits health in more ways than one and is fast becoming a superfood that can help improve blood flow and reduce blood pressure.
beetroot chutney with carrot: simple, instant recipe for beginners
Wondering about this simple recipe to make beet chutney? Worry not! We have listed a few beetroot benefits for you, and then the carrot beet chutney recipe is next.

A boost to your cardio health
Have you heard about beet's cardiovascular benefits? Well, some studies claim that eating beetroot can help reduce the risk of heart disease, obesity, and diabetes. Not only this, beet promotes a healthy complexion and is a tonic for your hair. So does this give you enough reasons to bring beet home?

If not, then you will find many more reasons to include beetroot in your regular meals. There are many ways to make beet a regular part of your meal plans, and you will find many instant beet recipes for beginners to try out here.

Diabetics may find beet as a superfood, as it contains alpha-lipoic acid, an antioxidant that may help reduce blood glucose, prevent oxidative stress, and improve insulin sensitivity in diabetics. Alpha-lipoic can further help reduce the risk of peripheral neuropathy, which affects many diabetics.

Did you know beetroot is packed with dietary fiber, which makes it a perfect digestion aid that promotes bowel movement and prevents constipation?

Inflammation
You might be surprised to know that this crimson-colored veggie can be a sleep inducer and help you get a good night's sleep. Beet contains a nutrient, known as choline, which works as a learning and memory aid and promotes muscle movement. Additionally, the nutrient choline aids in the maintenance of cellular membrane structure, helping in the absorption of fat while lowering the risk of inflammation.





Ingredients
2 beetroots
2 carrots
1 small ginger piece
1 tbsp- oil
2 tbsp- water
black salt, black pepper or green chilly for a spicy chutney
powdered roasted fenugreek seeds (methi powder)
apple cider vinegar-1 tbsp (optional - you may add imli/tamarind instead or even amla/gooseberry)
I did not want to add any sweet ingredient since beets and carrots are too sweet these days.
If you wish, you may want to add dates to raise the sweet level of your beet chutney.


How to make beetroot chutney with carrots: Instant recipe for beginners

Wash and put ginger, beet and carrots to the chopper so that you get finely chopped strings.
Now take a 2 or 3-liter pressure cooker.
Add oil, water, and apple cider vinegar.
Spread the chopped veggies.
Sprinkle salt, chilly/black pepper, and methi powder.
Cook for 10-12 whistles.
Open, mix and enjoy lip-smacking carrot beetroot chutney.

I have followed OPOS technique, which is patented by Rama Krishnan - the OPOS mentor. OPOS recipes are simple, hassle-free, quick, healthy, and oh so yummy. In order to start with OPOS, you need a 2 or 3-liter pressure cooker. Add 1/4cup of water to it and set on high heat. If your first whistle comes between 1 and 2 minutes, your pressure cooker is all set to join the OPOS bandwagon.

Beet Soup

Yes, you have heard it right. We are going to try the beetroot-curd curry with a dash of oatmeal. The addition of oats adds fiber to the curry and makes it even healthier. Research says it is always better to blend carbs, proteins, and fiber for a balanced meal.

So what are you waiting for? Add that extra nutrition to your diets and enjoy healthier meals.

Ingredients
Beetroot- 1/2 (boiled -4 whistles with little salt)
Boiled beet water -1 cup
Curd- 1 cup
2 tbsp- oatmeal
salt, coriander powder
Ginger-chilly paste
Curry leaves
chana dal, urad dal dal, mustard seeds
1/2 -1 tsp oil

Procedure

  1. Wash beet very well.
  2. Boil beet with little salt.
  3. Keep that water aside. We will need it for the recipe.
  4. Take oil in a pan. 
  5. Throw in mustard seeds, chana dal, urad dal.
  6. Let them splutter.
  7. Next add ginger-chilly paste. Add salt.
  8. Saute well.
  9. Now add beetroot cubes. Stir and cook on a low flame for 5-8 minutes or until soft.
  10. In a bowl mix beet water, oatmeal, and curd. 
  11. We will add this oat-curd-beet mixture to the pan.
  12. Let it simmer on a low flame for 8-10 minutes. You may add more water if you want to increase the amount.
  13. Garnish with curry leaves and enjoy with rice or savor it as soup.
  14. I had it with rice, while hubby like it as a soup. Works both ways.
