From Indian Vegetarian Cooking at Your House by Sunetra Humbad and Amy Schafer Boger, M.D. "Makes 1 cup (traditional serving = 2 TBS)"


  • 2 medium beets, peeled (or 1 large)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon coriander
  • 1/8 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice

In a small saucepan, boil the beets for 5 minutes. (They will still be quite firm.).

Grate or shred the beets.

In a small bowl, combine the shredded beets with the remaining ingredients.
