Beet - Pomegranate Salad

Beet and Pomegranate salad is an easy munching dish, it can be a good snack too. It is very simple to prepare and quick too.
Eating pomegranate helps the blood to to refresh and get strengthen. Beet helps in many ways like increase of red blood cells, helping the anemic to get back to normal etc etc.

I have used fresh beet (raw) and some pomegranate and little chat masala. You can add your own choice of fruits or vegetables and make it more creative.
Lets see some benefits of eating Pomegranate fruits in our diet.
Pomegranate fruit is one of the most nutritious rich fruit. The fruit contain moderate amount of calories and no cholesterol or saturated fat. It is very good source of soluble and insoluble dietary fiber and it helps in the easy digestion. It also helps people who suffer from constipation and bowel movements. Eating pomegranate helps in boosting immunity. It has antioxidant properties and Vitamin C in it. It is also good source Vital B complex groups of vitamins and minerals like calcium, copper, potassium and manganese.
Beetroot, tomatoes, pomegranate are red in colour. It is because of a red pigment in them, called Lycorpene. It gives red colour to the vegetables and it is rich source of antioxidant properties and it takes care of the healthy heart.
As I said earlier this is an easy, simply simple, quick and yummy salad or kosumbari as we say. I have not added any oil to it. You can eat this salad as it is or roll it inside chapatis or just munch it as snack.
Lets see the recipe now:

Things Needed :

Pomegranate : 1
Beetroot : 1
Chat Masala : 1/4 Teaspoon
Coconut : Fresh and grated: 1 Tablespoon

Method :

1. Wash and remove the outer layer of beetroot and grate it.
2. Wash and cut the pomegranate in to halves and collects the seeds from pomegranate and keep it aside.
3. Grate some coconut and keep it aside.
4. Now take a serving bowl, add grated beetroot, pomegranate seeds, chat masala and mix it well.
5. Add grated coconut, mix it well and serve this salald or kosumbari with rice items, chapatis or rotis as one of the side dish. (salad dish).

You can also fill or spread this Pomegranate Salad in the chapati and have Pomegranate Salad Rolls.

Note : 

I have used only beetroot and pomegranate. You can add grated carrots, capsicum etc etc (according to your wish). You can use onions but it does not go well with this salad. You can also add a spoon of olive oil. (I have not added). You can also use honey instead of chat masala and make it sweet salad. Use of coconut is optional.
Time : 15 Minutes.
Servings : 2 to  3.
