Beetroot or chukandar is a very common winter vegetable in India. Traditionally it has been used to treat blood, digestion and liver related ailments. It contains red color betanin compound which helps the blood flow apart from folate and magnesium. The red color root is still in season and can be used to make healthy vegetable and soups. Today I made Beetroot Soup, garnished it with some cream and it tasted so yummy. Soup is anyway a great family bonding time, I was also happy that everyone was also getting a lot of nutrition from the preparation.
