Beetroot Mudde Huli- Beetroot Curry 

Healthy Beetroot Mudde Huli- Beetroot Curry!

Beetroot Mudde Huli

A slow cooked beets curry that also doubles up as a soup for a winter day! When I asked my kids for dinner ideas, I was surprised to hear them say “Beets!” It does not happen very often that they ask for Beets, but yet this time it did because the last time I made my  Beetroot Curry, it was a great hit. The wonderful thing about this curry is that it doubles up as a soup too. If you are looking for a light meal or a lean and nutritious meal, Beets curry is a very quick & easy option.   

Beetroot Curry

Beets Curry has its origin from Karnataka, India. The dish is called “Beetroot Mudde  Huli”. A simple yet nutritious recipe that goes very well with steamed rice or as a soup. You can also sweeten the dish by adding a little jaggery to it. But I noticed that the beets I bought were so sweet that it did not need any more jaggery. The beets along with flavors from fenugreek and other spices sauteed in coconut oil make it a tasty and powerful way to add antioxidants to your meal. Adding garlic is optional, but it can be a great taste enhancer too.
