Beetroot is looking very attractive and healthy vegetable. It has a nice dark pink colour and everyone like this colour very much. We can make a lot of dishes by using this vegetable. Beet root wine, beetroot halva, beetroot Cake and beetroot pudding are the main dishes by beetroot. Beetroot stir fry or thoran is one of the easiest recipes which can made at home. It was the special side dish for the wedding celebration before but now a day it is not serving for the special occasions. It is very tasty thoran and we can make it very easily with limited ingredients. This stir fry is very good to children and we can give them for lunch. It contains a lot of health benefits. It is highly beneficial to human eyes and reduces the sugar of the human body. Skin colour will increase if we use it on daily basis. Beetroot will be available on market at any season and its price is less comparing other vegetables so everyone can try this recipe at any time. We have to chop it well then only we will get the real taste of this stir fry. Its taste based on its size and it may change based on its size. It is spicy-less stir fry and completely Kerala style stir fry. I have made this so many times in my house. It has the special and attractive flavour of cumin seeds and also has the mixed taste of coconut and cumin seeds. I have made this in pure coconut oil so it is very healthy dish for everyone. Usually it is serving as the side dish with hot rice for lunch and sometimes we are getting in Kerala restaurants.
