This cooling and refreshing beet raita withcucumber raita makes a perfect side dish to pair with Indian food.
Made using few ingredients, this dish is sure to impress your family and friends.
I started this recipe by roasting beets in the oven.
For the last year or so, I have started steaming beets in my Instant Pot. I buy small to medium sized beets and steam them in the Instant Pot. Depending on the size of the beets it takes upto 15 minutes to pressure cook the beets. Once the beets cool down, you can refrigerate them, peel and use in place of roasted beets in this delicious raita or salads.
