Eventhough I love betroot I hate the mess it makes to my kitchen tiles and my fingers after I grate it.This time when I got betroot I forgot to put them in the fridge and left it among my onions and potatoes outside.So after 2-3 days when I saw it lying outside ,the skin was really soft and it was impossible to grate it . Eventhough chopped betroots taste much better than grated one I always preferd later as it is easier ,but this time since I didnt have a choice I had to chop and I found that its much easier to chop soft betroots and the mess is also less(didnt make my tiles red) ! Normally I wouldnt post this here,but since chopped version is a special one for a lazy person like me I thought I should post it here !
