      1. Take care that you do not put beetroot in excess otherwise it will become too pink which may not be soothing to eyes.
      2. You may use a hand blender to puree it.
      3. While making puree, you may grind it coarsely or very fine, both are good.
      4. If using fresh basil or parsley, then chop it very finely.
      5. It remains good in the refrigerator for up to 7-8 days (even more in winters)
      6. For longer storage, pack it in plastic bags and freeze.
      7. At the time of use, put the plastic bag in warm water for a few minutes to thaw the sauce.
