beetroot carrot poriyal recipe – i usually make poriyals to serve as a side dish as they are quick, simple and easy to make and serve as a great healthy side dish. i have already shared the recipes of beetroot poriyal, cabbage poriyal, vendakkai poriyal and beans poriyal and will be posting more poriyal recipes soon.

beetroot carrot poriyal recipe

for the unacquainted, poriyal is a south indian dry vegetable preparation which can be made from different veggies like carrot, cabbage, okra, beetroot, potato etc.

to make poriyal, the veggies are first sauteed in spices, steamed and then topped with fresh grated coconut. if you love coconut based recipes then you must give poriyal a try. the best thing about poriyal recipes is that you get the full flavor of the veggies as they are not very heavily spiced.

you can serve beetroot carrot poriyal with rotis. or you can also serve them as a side dish with sambar rice or rasam rice combo. i sometime serve them with dal rice combo also and for me it goes great.

  1. This is how my mom makes it! actually she makes separate poriyals of beetroot and carrot. Gotta try this combined poriyal! 🙂

  2. This is an amazing dish! We have an Indian catering company here at work and one of the guys makes his version and it’s amazing – but your recipe is every bit as good if not better! Do you know how many calories there are per portion?

  7. Hi again Dassana. I have been following all your recipes now 🙂
    Can you help me with any recipe where I can use Beetroot leaves as well. I have a garden where I grow Kale, Beetroot, Silverbeet, n Zuccini. I know Zucini flowers are eaten as well but no idea how to cook them. Please help.
    Thanks again for so many wonderful recipes 🙂5 stars

    • with beetroot leaves, i would make something like a thoran or poriyal. basically the leaves are sauteed with tempered mustard, curry leaves, red chilies or green chilies, asafoetida, turmeric and then coconut is added towards the end. both thoran and poriyal with different veggies are posted on the blog, so you can have a look. another variaion would be sambar or dal, just like we make spinach sambar or palak dal. you can also saute them with some mushrooms, carrots, onions and garlic. add some black pepper powder for seasoning. also they can be added to salads or to soups. with zucchini flowers, you can make pakoras, like the way we make here with pumpkin flowers. the pumpkin flowers pakora are a delicacy in bengali cuisine and here the ingredients added are different. i also read that with tempura batter you can make zucchini fritters. though never tried. but yes pumpkin flowers pakora i have had a few times.
