(Beetroot and Potato Masala)

Jump to recipe ↓

Potato Masala is one item that is made often as a stuffing for puri, for masala dosa and for sandwiches. I often like to add other vegetables like carrot, beetroot or green peas along with potatoes. Today,  I want to share one such variation of mine – Beetroot Potato Masala.

The addition of beetroot adds to the nutritional value of the dish. It adds a reddish colour to the dish too. Kids who do not like beetroot will have this. It goes well with puri and can be used for making masala dosa.
