Pressure cook the grated beets with a pinch of salt and 3 tbsps of water (appox 3 whistles). Allow this to cool down to room temperature.

In a small pan, heat oil. Add mustard seeds and urad dal.

As urad dal turns golden brown and mustard seeds splutter, add coconut, asafetida, turmeric, thai chillies and curry leaves. Fry for 30 seconds.
