This recipe is excellent! I did tweak it a little, but essentially stayed true to the recipe. I boiled the beets whole ahead of time, then peeled them and diced them. When adding them to the rest of the ingredients it wasn't necessary to use as much water, maybe a half cup or so. (I am not much of a measurer!) I also toasted the cumin seeds in a dry skillet then ground them instead of using them whole. I used a can of diced tomatoes as I didn't have any fresh on hand, and it worked perfectly. I am excited to try the diced tomatoes that are canned with garlic or chiles or onions or whatever they have in them. These changes were just for convenience and personal preference. The recipe as listed sounded great. I just rarely cook anything exactly as the recipe calls for. Enjoy this dish as a side with any meal that needs a flavorful accompaniment. We ate it with Spanish Rice as another user suggested and it ROCKED!!
