Beetroot Curry and Hyderabadi Khatti Daal

One of my favorite meals. Absolutely delicious.

Here is my version of my mil's recipe:

1 large onion
3-4 medium beet roots
1 lb mixed goat parts
1 generous teaspoon garlic paste
1 generous teaspoon ginger paste
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
salt to taste

*** I don't measure things, i generalize so these are estimates.

With a tablespoon or so of oil, cook onions until they are brown. Add the goat and sprinkle spices over it. Mix around and brown on all sides - about five minutes or so and then add the beets (cut into largish chunks). Add enough water to almost cover the meat and beets. Add salt to taste. And cook until beets are fork tender and meat is tender.

The daal recipe can be found here.

There's a kazillion ways to make daal - being married to a Pakistani i'm learning more and more of them. My mil has many great ways of making it and of course, she's the one who taught me how to make dalcha - mmmmmmm, mmmmmmm, good.
