I looked everywhere and couldn’t find the beetroot powder in the shops that I needed for a butter chicken. I was in my local grocery store looking for it and about to give up when on the way out I saw some fresh beetroot.
So I made my own dried beetroot to get the powder and along the way got lots of yummy beetroot crisps too.
Take a fresh beetroot and peel it.
Cut it into really thin slices as this will aid the drying process.
I then used my oven, as it was already on from cooking the previous dish and cooling down, to slowly dry the slices out.
You can use a dehydrator if you have one.
They looked so amazing that I couldn’t help eating half of them on the spot:
I then busted out my mortar and pestle:
Keep the crisps whole in an airtight bag. You can then munch or grind them as needed.
