Blogging Marathon# 65: Week 3/ Day 1 Theme: 1 Vegetable — 3 Dishes Dish: Indian Style Beet Salad
We are starting a new week of blogging marathon today and my theme for this week is to pick 1 vegetables and make 3 dishes. My favorite eggplant and the family favorite potato were fighting to get into the spotlight this week, but I wanted to give the less favored Beets a chance, so this way I can add new recipes to my repertoire.
I am not a big fan of beets but at the same time I don’t completely dislike it. The whole family is against it — the color doesn’t attract them at all, I think it actually make them go the other way. Anyway my husband liked this beet salad that I made during the detox diet (I guess he was forced to like it after eating the same dishes 3 days straight), so that is one of the main reasons for picking Beets for the week.
First up is an easy and nutritious Indian style Beet salad. Recipe is from a Telugu cooking show. Salad is made with Indian flavors with some crunch from peanuts, roasted gram dal and cashews. Even with such simple ingredients, the salad tasted amazing.
