Beetroot Paneer Curry Recipe

Beetroot is one healthy vegetable, and I learnt about it long back, however I always wondered how to bring it to best use. I normally use beetroot in salad, and juice. I have also used beetroot in soups, pickles and smoothies. This time around I am sharing something new, this is “beetroot paneer”. It is evident that a majority of people love paneer hence I decided to create this rich gravy based curry.

Beetroot is low in calories and is a great source of nutrients, including fiberfolate and vitamin C. Beetroots also contain pigments and nitrates which may help lower blood pressure and improve athletic performance.

Paneer/ cottage cheese equally offer some of the great benefits, e.g. paneer is rich in protein (great for vegetarians), it also strengthens bones and teeth, paneer has decent amount of phosphorous which helps in digestion and excretion. Based on all these healthy benefits I present this beetroot paneer recipe.
