Carrot Beetroot Poriyal

#CarrotBeetrootPoriyal - #CarrotBeetrootStirFry : #Carrot and #beetroot are widely used taproot vegetables all over the world in cooking. Both are slightly sweet in taste and generally consumed as salads, sweets and in curries. Both take very less time to cook. So can be cooked together to make a tasty recipe. I have taken equal quantity of carrot and beetroot. But final outcome is a tasty #poriyal with beetroot color.
