Beetroot Pakoda | Easy Tea Time Snacks

As a kid I always had trouble eating vegetables and I remember amma taking all pains to make different types to sneak in the veggies. This is one of the kind but beetroot is always my favourite. Hope you enjoy this as much as I do/did :) Beetroot either as halwa or even as a simple poriyal, I just love it.
