When I shared the beetroot carrot stir fry recipe a couple days back, I mentioned how I love this combination of carrots and beetroots. In case you guys didn't believe me then, I have this beetroot carrot thoran to prove it!
Since I was dealing with a large batch of carrots and beetroots that day, I made both the stir fry and the thoran on the same day. Although there was a bit of chopping and grating involved, no complaints from me!
Any kind of thoran is an essential ingredient in an Onam Sadya and usually people go with a cabbage thoran. Beetroot is more commonly added to a pachadi in the form of beetroot pachadi but if it were up to me and I was the one making all those long list of dishes for Onam, I'd go with an okra pachadi and carrot beetroot thoran!
