Beetroot is a versatile veggie that can be enjoyed raw as well as cooked. It can be made into soups, desserts, parathas, salads and a lot more! The naturally sweet taste of the beetroot can be used while making a sweet dish but when paired with spices, it can also make a dish tangy. Beetroot is not just pretty to look at but also is very rich in iron and fibre.
