A South Indian diversion from the usual pea and potato samosa, this one has Keralan influences and is packed with energy boosting beetroot. Not only is beetroot good for you it tastes great and looks gorgeous too. The sweetness combined with the texture of toasted coconut if a lovely marriage.
I saw a similar recipe to this many years ago on a TV chat show and I thought it was a great addition to the traditional flavours we are used to seeing on the Indian menu. I have over the years tried a number of different versions some with raisins and some with almonds too but I like this version. It's fairly simple and because I love beetroot I think it makes a fabulous little starter. Give it a go as I would love to hear what you think.
