Spread the Joy!
I told you that I have started using microwave right?
This is another dish which I made using that. A quick and simple stir fry which takes no time to cook..It is just so easy peasy to make but taste so fresh and healthy. The cool thing about cooking in microwave is it helps to retain all the nutrients in that vegetable since you are not cooking it for so long..This is one such dish..
Beetroots are so healthy for you..It has tons of vitamins and minerals in it..It purifies your blood and makes you healthy..I have even heard that beetroots makes you fairer..I don’t know whether it is true or not, but its good for you…And one more thing about beetroots is it can be used as a lip stick, just take a piece of beet and rub over your lips, you will get a pinky pinky lips..But do this when you are at home ok(LOL)
Hope you try this recipe and tell me how it turned out for you.
