Beetroot raita recipe - how to make beetroot raita - raita recipe

Beetroot raita recipe - Beetroot is very popular among children because of it's deep red colour. My kids like to eat boiled beetroot over raita. Beetroots are very low in calories and contain zero cholesterol. They are good source of minerals such as iron, manganese, copper and magnesium. They contain ample amount of folate and potassium. Potassium controls blood pressure. It is helpful in metabolic process and muscle function. Magnesium is helpful for the formation of bone in the body. They are sweet in taste because they contain more sugar than starch. Whatever it may be, I made this raita  for simple reason. While buying other vegetables, I found fresh beetroots and bought them. I made raita from it. We ate and enjoyed.
