After one minute standing time remove the bowl from the oven.
Heat a pan and add oil to it. When the oil is hot add Bengal gram and black gram. Fry stirring on low flame. Fry till the seeds start changing color. Then add the mustard seeds and cumin seeds. Fry till the seeds splutter. By now the bengal gram and black gram will be brown in color. Now add red chili pieces and chopped curry leaves. Fry well and add the cooked beetroot.

Points to Notice:
Certain vegetables we avoid eating because of the color or texture or taste is not to our expectations. Beetroot comes under that category. Many do not like its taste. But beetroot is rich in Iron and is an excellent remedy for anemia. So do not avoid eating such nutritious vegetables. Instead make them look presentable to eat. Instead of cutting the beetroot into small pieces, grate it and make the curry to look presentable to eat. Then see the difference for yourself.
Beetroot has a natural sweet taste. So add salt and red chilies in small quantities to enjoy the natural sweet taste of beetroot.
