Karan's Beetroot Curry
Serves: 4 as a side
Excerpted from Hoppers: The Cookbook: Recipes, Memories and Inspiration from Sri Lankan Homes, Streets and Beyond by Karan Gokani. Copyright © 2022. Available from Hardie Grant Publishing.
While there are several recipes in this book that find their roots in ourJaffna trip and the many memorable meals I have had at Jet wing hotels across Lanka, the recipe below is something Dharshi cooks for the boys at home. We often feature this beetroot curry as part of our rice and curry lunch plate at the restaurants and I frequently make it at home when I’m after a quick, healthy meal. It adds a vibrancy to the plate and a beautiful sweetness to the meal. You can use everything from baby rainbow beets to golden beets in it and just wilt in some shredded greens like beet leaves, kale or spinach at the end, to give the dish yet another dimension.
