Servings 4


  • 2 Medium-Sized Beetroots medium sized beetroots
  • 1 tsp Fenugreek Seeds methi seeds
  • 2 tsp Mustard Seeds
  • 5-6 Red Chillies
  • 1/4 tsp Asafoetida hing
  • 1/4 tsp Turmeric
  • 1-2 Lemon
  • 1/4 tsp Salt to be adjusted as per taste, or as per taste
  • 1 tbsp Oil


  • Dry roast the methi seeds, mustard seeds and red chilies. Keep this aside to cool. Add 2-3 chillies, only, if you prefer the chutney to be less spicy.
  • Cut beetroots into small pieces. Heat a small pan; add half a tablespoon of oil. Once the oil is heated up, add the carrot pieces. Fry for a few minutes (2-4 minutes) and let it cook, by covering with a lid until it becomes just soft.
  • Add turmeric to the carrot pieces, mix and put off the flame. Let it cool. Blend the beetroot pieces, chilies and the spices (from Step 1) to a coarse consistency. Transfer this to a serving bowl.
  • Squeeze the juice of one lemon in the chutney, mix well. If required, add more lemon juice.
  • If you prefer, add the seasoning separately, by heating half a tablespoon of oil and adding a pinch of fenugreek seeds and mustard seeds. Let the mustard seeds splutter.
  • Add asafetida, saute and put off the heat. Pour this over the chutney. This step is optional as the seasoning is already added and ground with the chutney.
  • Personally, I prefer to have this seasoning, as the bitter - soft crunch of seeds, whilst savoring this chutney lends a unique and endearing culinary experience. Savor this chutney with hot rice and a dab of oil.

Recipe Notes
