Beetroot palya (sabzi)

Anything with beetroot in it, makes the item delicious, but my personal favorite is this simple palya. For nursing moms, this is a great source of iron too.

Beetroot-----------2 medium sized
Ghee----1tsp (clarified butter )
Cummin- seeds ------------1/2 tsp
Fenugreek seeds-------1/4 tsp
Aniseed (sonfh)----1/4 tsp
Mustard- seeds ----------1/4 tsp

Red chillies-------2 whole
Salt to taste

1.Dice the beetroot and keep aside.
2. Prepare a seasoning of cumin seeds, fenugreek  seeds, aniseed, mustard, turmeric, red chillies in ghee, then add the chopped beetroot and pressure cook
3. Once it cools down add salt and serve with rice or rotis.
