Beetroot pulao recipe, Beetroot rice recipe

Beetroot pulao/ Beetroot rice is a very colorful, mildly spicy and delicious one pot meal cooked to perfection with basmati rice, beetroot and green peas. Beetroot pulao is super easy and very simple to make lunch recipe that also serves as an perfect lunch box recipe loaded with veggies. A simple raita accompanied with this pulao makes the lunch delicious. I usually don’t prepare many dishes with beetroot as I am not a big fan of this veggie 🙄don’t ask me the reason, super silly! I always feel that it has a earthy or muddy flavor to it which I completely dislike but, I like to prepare dishes with beets specially something innovative is because my hubby is a huge fan of thiss particular veggie. So one such trial was this recipe and I was surprised to know that such a variety rice already existed, then I understood I am the one outdated and this was not my innovation. Its okay even though not something new let it still hold a place in the blog for our later reference. For this recipe I used green peas along with beetroot just for taste which can be skipped too, also added some red chilli powder and green chilli as well to keep it spicy which can be altered according to your preference, also garam masala powder can be skipped if you don’t like it. Just a simple and quick lunch to relish on a working day. So lets get to the making!!
