Beetroot Stir Fry / Grated Beetroot Poriyal

Typically we use Beetroot cut into pieces as Pooriyal. Since Beetroor is a readily available and healthy food, we need to have varieties of recipes with Beetroot so that there is no fatigue if we use it frequently. If we grate Beetroot, we can use it as poriyal also and as sidedish for chappathi also.
