This colorful Beetroot Salad makes a great little snack or starter and is really easy to prepare. It has Maharashtrian Koshimbir touch with ground roasted peanuts, just like Gajarchi Koshimbir.
Beetroot is very healthy as it has been linked to better stamina, improved blood and lower blood pressure.
Many people say ‘no’ to raw cut chunks of Beetroot in Salad. But when Beetroot is little boiled or steamed, it becomes very juicy and sweet.Raw beetroot always gives earthy taste and mineral flavors to a salad. But if you want the juicy taste, prefer boiling it.
You can cut Beetroot into chunks.But I preferred to grate it. And always wear apron because Beetroot leaves its color behind. I added lemon juice and ground roasted peanuts to give tangy flavor and crunchy texture.
These peanuts give very nice nutty texture to our beetachi koshimbir. Also, using peanuts is a specialty in Maharashtrian Dishes.
