This Beet salad is one of my favourites. It’s really easy to put together and tastes delicious.

Packed with essential nutrients, beetroots are a great source of fibre, folate (vitamin B9), manganese, potassium, iron, and vitamin C. Beetroots and beetroot juice have been associated with numerous health benefits, including improved blood flow, lower blood pressure, and increased exercise performance.

A Hint Of Spice

Hi. I am Padma and I am passionate about delicious food. Food is amazing in that it can take you to another place and time in your life just by the taste, smell and touch. Even a photograph evokes memories that lie dormant within us. I still remember a coconut candy that I used to eat as a child. Even though it’s not available now, I clearly remember the taste. It takes me back to my childhood pleasures as nothing else can. Being Indian, my palate is so used to spices. I started experimenting by mixing spices with European and other Western cuisines. The result is truly delicious. I love trying out different spices with different recipes. Sometimes I use the powder and sometimes I grind the spices with other herbs, onions, etc in the blender. The result is quite spectacular – a lovely fusion of the East and West. I hope you like my recipes and are inspired enough to try out a few of them. I would love to hear back from you.
