What about making autumn´s grey days a little bit more colorful? This was not the first intention, but the truth is that I ended up with a dish that has a powerful color and  can lift any soul if it is grey outside. May be that happy dish came out naturally because I truly enjoy Autumn. I like to leave back the hot days of summer and enter this cozy season where the days are shorter and you star to smell the fragrance of the chimneys.


This curry is not only beautiful but healing and truly delicious. The secret to have that powerful color is by blending the cooked beetroots once the stew is finished. That is why you don´t have to cut the beetroot very small in order to find it easily before blending it.



You can serve it on its own with some seed crackers or with any whole grain of your liking or even some cooked potatoes. Remember it will be much better in taste the day after.



P.S: Somebody told me it was a great dish to make for Halloween! Enjoy it!
