Thanks to the Spice Pioneer for allowing us to share his recipe:
In a medium/large saucepan heat the oil and butter over a medium heat. Add the curry leaves (of a pot) and allow them to sizzle for 30 seconds or so.
Add the onion and chilli. Fry until the onion softens and begins to develop some colour. Add the garlic, cinnamon, coriander and fenugreek seeds (½ teaspoon). Stir and fry for another minute or two. Add the beetroot and mix well.
Fry for another 3-4 minutes then add the vinegar and the sugar. Stir in the coconut milk and the salt. Reduce to a simmer until the beetroot is cooked. Keep warm until required.
