  • I like the vegetable a tad undercooked and thus crunchy. Cook more if you desire it well done.

  1. This was a very simple recipe and very much like a mallu preparation… I used carrots too since I had very less of beetroots. Surprisingly, my husband, who is very less oriented towards veggies, liked it the most.
    Sometimes, it’s the simplest that tastes the best.?
