Before the rains come you must try making some Beetroot Powder at home. You can use it to color your cakes, cookies ,breads. Sprinkle some on your gravies to get a nice color. The list is endless. You just need yo leash your creativity.
Wash and scrub the beetroot really well.
If you want you can peel them, I did not.
Slice them thinly either wit a sharp knife or a slicer.
Spread them on a plate/ baking sheet in a single layer.
Dry them in the sun till they are crisp.
You can also dry it in the oven at the lowest temperature .
Grind into a fine powder.
Sieve to remove bits and pieces.
Store in an airtight glass bottle.
