In this recipe, I have cooked the Beetroot in Onion, Ginger and Garlic with some spices. I have used Cumin seeds (Jeera) for tempering and used Cumin powder, Coriander powder and Garam masala for flavouring. I have grated the Beetroot for better colour and flavour. Few people also use diced or sliced Beetroots for preparing Pulao.

As I have dedicated this recipe to the Cute Kids, so I have added a whole green chilli just for flavouring. I have not chopped it or slit it. In fact, I have not used any Chilli powder too. If you like you can increase the amount of Chilli and Chilli powder according to your taste preference.

I have used long grain Basmati rice to prepare this Beetroot Pulao. Normally, Basmati rice goes best for preparing Pulao because of its texture, taste and aroma. Basmati rice gets cooked very quickly. Before cooking this rice, it is very important to soak it in water for some time.

For a perfect Pulao, right quantity of water, temperature and timing, are three vital points. Though it sounds very tough, but it is not. If you follow the instructions, you will surely get your perfect Pulao. In this recipe, I have cooked the Pulao in Kadai.

You can prepare this dish either in Pressure Cooker or Kadai. In Pressure Cooker, it gets cooked little faster than in Kadai. But in both ways, you will get the tasty and wonderful coloured Pulao rice.

Beetroot Pulao consists of the slight sweetness of Beetroots and the flavours of spices. In this recipe, in addition to Beetroots I have also added Carrots and green Bell Peppers to make the dish healthier and tastier. But normally, people avoid adding any other vegetables.

Beetroots are full of nutrients. They are very good source of vitamins, minerals, fibre and nitrates. They contain iron and reduce many health issues. Beetroots are low in calories and fat and improves our digestion. In fact, it has high concentration of nitrates and helps in reducing blood pressure level. In short, Beetroots are powerhouse of healthy content and regular consumption of it may make our life healthier and happier.
