Beetroot Kootu Recipe -- How to make Beetroot Kootu Recipe -- E.A.T

Beetroot Kootu
Kootu is delicious South Indian dish, can be consumed with hot piping rice and fried or roasted papad. Nice aroma spreads across the home while preparing this dish, then only we will get the delicious and tasty kootu. Everyone in my home likes it very much. We need to have some patience to prepare this. Though it may not take a longer time to cook. We need to prepare and cook it in the low to medium flame, not only to avoid from burning but also to get the right consistency and to cook it completely. Preparation means making the kootu masala paste and cooking is making the actual dish here.
My mother is the expert in this, she adds peanuts to it while boiling. I like them very much. On a rainy Sundays, when she makes it, it's my elder brother's duty to fry papad to serve with it. In my place, my husband and in-laws like it without peanuts, so I had to stop adding them. So they are not there in the ingredients list.
