Beetroot thoran recipe, Beetroot stir fry

Beetroot thoran/ Beetroot stir fry is a delish and flavorful stir fry/ poriyal where tempered beetroot mixture is mixed with coconut shallot mixture and cooked to perfection using coconut oil. This dry side dish tastes great when served along with sambar and rice during lunch. This dish also is one of the 27 dishes served in the banana leaf on onam festival. For this recipe I have used coconut oil in its making which makes the dish more flavorful and aromatic, but if you don’t have coconut oil you can use regular cooking oil as well. I made very little quantity of this dish as i don’t like beetroot but later regretted for it as the dish was inviting with its aroma and flavors. So let’s get to the making!
