Beet Pulao | Quick Fix Ideas

Children got bored of the same white rice for quite a few days,and they wanted a change.So, came up with this very idea of adding beets into it.No additional cooking time required nor its a costly affair,just an extra effort.In return,you get a healthy rice recipe for all and a nice colour to the rice too.Enjoy this rice with pickle & pappad !!

rice 1cup
beet 1 small chopped
water 1 1/2cup
pepper powder 1/2 tsp
mint leaves few chopped
cumin seeds1/2 tsp
oil 1 tbsp


Heat oil in the cooker and pop cumin seeds.Add the chopped beet,saute for 2 minutes.

Then,boil water & add salt,pepper powder.Cook covered on medium flame for 15minutes.

Beet rice is ready. Garnish with mint leaves.

Serve with pickle/raitha /pappad !!

  • Servings 2 adults 

    * You can use any rice.Use water according to the quality of rice.
