Yes! They are PINK! Really bright pink. Every time I make this my daughter gushes about the color. Beets are known to be good for eyes, lowering blood pressure and increasing stamina. I often steam them, add a little salt and snack on them. This particular cool raita is not only pleasing to eyes, they are very tasty and filling. Do try them from your regular cucumber raita.
