I got this recipe from a salad cookbook. As usual, I made modifications to the quantities to my liking and used the ingredients that I had.
2-3 beets, boiled & diced
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
juice of 1 orange
1 tsp fine sugar (I used regular sugar)
1 tsp fennel seeds (Gujarati: variyaali)
salt & pepper
baby spinach to make a bed for salad
First of all, boil the peeled beets in pressure cooker for 3 whistles.
Once boiled and cooled a bit, dice the beets and set aside.
Dicing the boiled beet
Heat the olive oil in a heavy-bottom pan. Add orange juice, sugar and fennel seeds and stir well until sugar dissolves. Add salt and pepper to taste and add diced beet to it. Stir to coat all beets with the dressing and then remove from the heat.
Cooking diced beet with dressing
Arrange baby spinach leaves in a plate or bowl and put the warm beet on top and serve immediately.
