Instructions
  1. Heat the coconut oil in a wok.
  2. Pop the mustard seeds and add the cumin seeds.
  3. When the cumin starts to sizzle, immediately add the shallots. Fry the shallots on a medium flame for 2 minutes.
  4. Now add the whole red chili, chopped green chili and ginger, fry for a minute.
  5. Add the curry leaves.
  6. Lower the flame and add all the dry masala powders including the garam masala.
  7. Make sure not to burn the masala.
  8. Fry for a half a minute and then add the beetroot. Mix the chopped beetroot with salt.
  9. Cook the beetroot without a lid with occasional stirrings. If the beetroot is grated, they will cook faster.
  10. This takes approximately 10-12 minutes for the grated beetroot to cook.
  11. You can also keep the beetroot slightly crunchy if you prefer.
  12. When the beetroot is cooked, add the grated coconut and cook for a minute or two for the flavors to blend in. Switch off the flame.
  13. Serve.
