Beetroot Pulao – Rice Varieties

November 8, 2017 Bachelor Friendly RecipesLunch Box Menu  One comment

Beetroot is not my favourite. Hubby & Chotu love it though. I usually make this Beetroot Fry for chapathi/rice & love this Halwa!. This time I made this Beetroot Pulao as an one pot meal. It was perfect & quick for a lazy weekend. The lovely colour will attract kids and people who do not like beetroot like me will not make a big fuss! This Pulao and a simple raita would do to compile a hearty meal.

It is a good lunch box meal & easy for bachelors and working women. A small tip to make it even quicker (if u can plan ahead) is to chop the beetroot and refrigerate it. If that is done the pulao will be ready in no time.

Method:

  • Heat a pressure cooker with oil and add sliced onions. Saute until translucent. Add ginger/garlic paste and saute until raw smell goes off.

 

  • Add chopped beetroot & frozen peas. Add salt, chilli powder & garam masala.

 

  • Saute until all the masala blend well and raw smell goes off. Add washed basmati rice. Rinsing it just once will do.

Thats it! Beetroot Pulao is ready!
