Beetroot Pachadi or Beetroot with Yogurt

Beetroot pachadi is one colorful and tasty side dish usually served on the occasion of Onam and Vishu. It is healthy, delicious and very easy to prepare. I love Kerala style cuisine, especially special delicacies like avial, inji curry, pachadi, pulissery etc. I grew up eating this lovely dishes as my maternal grandparents are from this place. When you eat a Sadya (Kerala Tali) you can see all different colors and flavors. I am going to share my version of pachadi here, this can be prepared in many ways.
