Ingredients

  • 1 cup peeled and coarsely chopped beetroot
  • 4-6 oz plain yoghurt
  • 1 tbsp freshly grated ginger
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp asafoetida
  • 1 tsp ground chili
  • 1 tbsp fresh cilantro, torn
  • 2 tsp lime juice
  • sea salt
  • freshly ground pepper

Instructions

  1. Boil the peeled and chopped beetroot until tender.  Just make sure you don't let it get mushy.  You want the beetroot to hold its shape.  Drain and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking.

  2. In a small bowl add the spices and juice together.  Toss the beetroot in the spices until well coated.  

  3. Mix in the plain yoghurt.  Chill in the fridge until ready to serve.
