Beetroot Sauce

Hari says

This is a lovely way to use beetroot, a simple yet vibrant sauce that is super easy to make. The sweetness from the beetroot works so beautifully with the delicate cumin and warming ginger and chilli. To top that the gorgeous colour looks amazing too. 

  • Ingredients
  • Method
  • 2 beetroots
  • 3 cm piece ginger
  • juice from half lemon
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp chilli powder



  1. Peel your beetroot and place in a pan, cover with water and bring to the boil. Leave to simmer until it's soft about 20-30 mins. Alternatively you can buy the ready cooked ones (not the ones in vinegar though)
  2. Put all the ingredients into a liquidiser and blitz until smooth. You may need to add a little water to help with this.
  3. Taste the chutney and adjust the seasoning if required - I usually add a little more chilli.
