Beets with Potato Stir Fry

For those who doesn’t like the taste of Beetroot like me and may others , here is a stir fry recipe , the taste and texture of potatoes neutralizes any beet flavor ,
I know most of you would love the taste of Beetroot , but only me I am not a fan of these
Crazyy mee …..

Beetroot is a very nutritious vegetable , its a miracle ingredient which helps lower Blood Pressure as lot of studies proved the same

 The high content of “Nitrates” in Beetroot produces a gas called Nitric Oxide in Blood which widens the blood vessels and hence lowers Blood Pressure

Also “Betacyanin” a pigment which gives beets that color is a powerful Antioxidant , which helps to reduces the risk of heart disease and stroke.

& Also its high in Iron content , hence helps to increase Hemoglobin in blood

And so I am forced to buy Beetroots at least once in a week
