Hi all working woman, Try this recipe. This curry is real tasty & yummy. This stays good for 1 week when stored in refrigerator.
U can also use carrot in place of beetroot or both carrot and beetroot together can be used.


Is there any benefit of beetroot after washing it so many times and wats the point in taking it in...
