i have posted several rice recipes till now, but beetroot rice recipe is the most attractive and flavoured recipe out of all. perhaps it is because of the bright and attractive colour the beetroot vegetable applies to the rice. in addition, the combination of sweet and savoury spice cannot be matched by any other rice recipe. generally, pulao recipe is savoury to spice in the taste. and some may have to offer the rich and creamy flavour due to the addition of coconut cream or milk to it. but in this recipe, the sweetness is completely organic due to the beetroot vegetable and not by adding any sugar. i personally like this recipe as it is a one-pot meal and an ideal recipe for a lunch box, but can be served with any choice of dal recipes.

beetroot pulao

the beetroot rice recipe is quite simple to prepare, yet some tips and suggestion to make it perfect. firstly, i have added cubed and grated beetroot while cooking the rice to make it colourful. additionally, you can add roughly chopped beetroot along with beetroot puree for a better experience. secondly, you can experiment the recipe by adding other veggies like potatoes, carrot and beans. i personally would recommend this as the other veggies would overpower the beetroot flavour. finally, i would heavily recommend preparing this recipe with basmati rice or long grain rice. alternatively, you can also use sona masuri but may have to be careful so that it does not turn mushy.

finally, i request you to visit my other popular pulao recipes collection with this post of beetroot rice recipe. it includes recipes like veg fried rice, methi rice, lemon rice, pudina rice, capsicum rice, tomato rice and carrot rice recipe. in addition, i do have other related and popular recipes collection like,
