Beet Koshimbir/Raita (बीटाची कोशिंबीर )

Beet is a highly nutritious root vegetable. It has vibrant red color. Good way to eat this root vegetable is by making Raita/Koshimbir(marathi word for raita), although I have eaten it shredded raw in a salad. My older kid love this koshimbir, it's his absolute favorite. As beets are naturally sweet you don't have to add too much sugar to this recipe. Cook beets by first washing them and cutting in half and pressure cook it. Beet Raita is quite simple to make. I have always used fresh beets to make this raita but you can try using canned beets.

1 Beet cooked, peeled and grated
1/4 cup red onion chopped
1 green chili chopped
2 tsp peanut powder
1/2 cup yogurt
1/2 tsp sugar
Salt as per taste
Chopped Cilantro for garnishing.

Mix all the above ingredients in a bowl and serve.
