Beetroot Palya:

Beetroot - 3
Palya Powder - 2 tbsp
Sugar - 1 tsp
Salt - to taste
Oil - 1 tbsp
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Curry leaves - few
Cilantro/Coriander leaves - few

Grate the beetroot using a handy grater
Heat oil in a kadai, add mustard seeds to it and wait till it splutters
Add curry leaves and leave them to roast
Add Salt, Sugar to the oil
Put the grated beetroot to the oil
Stir them well
Once the beetroot is cooked, add palya powder and mix well
Garnish with coriander leaves


Palya Powder:

Using different powders in cooking, cooking would be very simpler and fast, as they are handy.

Groundnut Seeds (roasted) - 1 cup
Fried gram (pottukadale) (putani) (chanagapappulu) - 1 cup
Red Chillies (guntur mirpakayalu, which is not twisted) - 1/2 cup

Grind all the above ingredients in a food processor / mixer

Note: You need to just add this powder while making palya/poriyal along with salt for the cooked vegetable.


I was delighted to cook last Saturday, 19th Nov 2011 a variety of dishes viz., Rice, Dhal Fry, Rasam with Dhal, Beetroot Palya/Poriyal, Sweet Pongal and curds (of course, curds is just adding sour curds into the milk nothing more than that).
