|Beet Kaanji is the best way I love to have beets, you hv best of both worlds here !|
Beetroot : 1 (Thinly sliced)
Carrots: 1/4 cup (Thinly sliced)
Ginger: 1/2 tsp, grated
Mustard Powder: 2 tsp (Available at grocery store, else use mortar to make fresh from mustard seeds)
Salt: 1 tsp or to taste
Pepper: a dash
Water: 7-8 cups
The kanji is best made and stored in a glass jug or earthen pitcher.
Thoroughly wash, peel and thinly slice or julienne both the beets, ginger and carrots.
Toss it with salt, mustard powder and a dash of pepper.
Add plenty of water, ~7-8 glasses and cover the pitcher with a muslin cloth.
Keep covered for 3-4 days at room temperature.
If possible, let the jar get some some direct exposure to sunshine, this will enhance the colors & flavors.
Make sure you stir the mix in the jar once in a day.
Slowly but surely, the mustard powder starts turning our mix into a sour & tangy drink.
Kanji should be ready in three days when beets leave their lovely shade and flavor to the water.

|Feel like fishing my beets out, Lovely & Submerged !|
Its very important that the jar is not over exposed (beyond 3-4 days) to ambient conditions, and as soon as the it is ready we need to chill it to make sure we dont get any form of uncontrolled fermentation.
To store Kanji keep it chilled in the refrigerator and enjoy it with your afternoon meals or anytime.
I like to leave the beets/carrots within the juice and eat it later.
If you dont like'em then sieve'em out before serving.
It's a truly rejuvenating thirst quencher.... !!!!
|These pickled beets are amazing ... go digg'em out !!!|
I love to fish out & eat these crunchy pickled beets as an appetizer.
There are crunchy, juicy & little sour - great great combination of all things I desire in a appetizer.
|Beauty in Red, do you disagree ???|
OK this might sound silly, I wasn't prepared for this but still I attempted a pour shot from a distance.
|... an Amateurish attempt at pour shot :)|
We loved our Kanji drink & have been enjoying the same for past few days.
Hope you like the presentation & will share with me your feedback
Thanks for all the love... Hugs, Sonia
