Hi, Searched for a different recipe with beetroot and stopped here. Just made Beetroot Paruppu Usili. The taste is too good. But the final product is not of crumbled consistency but sticky? Why so? And, should I have to add water while adding the ground chana dhal paste with the veggie? Otherwise it sticks on the bottom of the pan....Can you clear my doubts? Thank You.

@Viji: You can steam cook the ground dhal paste like we steam idli.. Then u can just cool it and break it with your hands as we do for idli upma and add it after the beetroot gets cooked.
