Red Chilli flakes:1tbspn
Salt:as per taste

Peel,wash and grate beetroot in a bowl. Add coconut scrapings,red chilli flakes and salt to the grated beet.

Heat oil in a pan.Add mustard.As it splutters,add chana dal,saute till it starts to brown,add the beet mixture.You can add a little or no water to this as beet when mixed with salt gives out water.Cover and cook for few minutes.Serve as a dry side dish with rice.

I just love beet, but chop them off to some pieces instead of grating as it takes more time...lovely color
