VATHAKUZHAMBHU RECIPE | BEETROOT VATHAKUZHAMBHU

Vathakuzhambhu is a usual one which i normally make with shallots, drumsticks or any othe rveggie. But this is the first time i am making with beetroot as one of my friend told that beetroot vathakuzhambhu  is a popular one at her place. After i started making vathakuzhambhu with beetroot it has become a popular one at my house too. Go ahead and try this one and will like it for sure.
