Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat; add onion and a pinch of salt. Cook and stir onion until softened, 5 to 10 minutes. Add garlic and ginger; cook and stir until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add diced beetroot and stir to combine. Pour water over mixture and sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon salt; bring to the boil.
Cover pot and reduce heat to medium-low; simmer, stirring occasionally, until beetroot are easily pierced with a fork, 20 to 25 minutes. Add potatoes and cook until potatoes are soft but not falling apart, about 15 minutes.
