Ingredients

  • 3 cups Beetroot leaves and stems – chopped and tightly packed, from 3 medium beets
  • 2 small or 1 ½ cups Potatoes cubed
  • 2 tablespoons Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Cumin seeds
  • 2 Green chilies chopped finely
  • 1 teaspoon Ginger paste or freshly grated or crushed
  • 1 ½ teaspoons Coriander powder
  • ½ teaspoon Red chili powder
  • ½ teaspoon Turmeric powder
  • Salt to taste
  • ½ teaspoon Garam masala
  • ½ teaspoon Amchur powder (Dried mango powder) or you can use lemon juice instead

Instructions

Preparation:

  • Chop the beetroot leaves, also chop the stems.
  • My beetroot stems are pretty thin and tender, so I chopped it without peeling it. But if yours are thick then you might need to peel it or remove those strings. You will feel and see those strings as you chop whether it needs to be peeled or not.
  • Wash them very well. I keep them in cold water in a bowl till I prepare other ingredients for this subzi. By this time all the dirt will settle down at the bottom of the bowl. And then you can remove those leaves from the water with your hand.
  • Alternately you can wash them before chopping.
  • Also peel and cut the potatoes

Making aloo beet greens sabzi recipe:

  • Heat the oil in pan on medium heat.
  • Once hot add cumin seeds and let them sizzle.
  • Then add chopped green chilies and ginger paste. Sauté for 30 seconds.
  • Then add potatoes and beetroot leaves. Mix well.
  • Add turmeric powder, coriander powder, red chili powder and salt. Mix well.
  • Cover the pan and cook on medium heat. Stir once or twice in between to make sure that it is not sticking to the pan.
  • Cook till potatoes are cooked and tender. Potatoes should be soft but not mushy.
  • Finally add amchur and garam masala.
  • Mix well, switch off the gas and ready to serve.
