Beetroot Pulao

Beets pulao4

Its universally known fact that Girls love Pink and Boys love blue. :)

Of course it goes more for kids. As kids most of the girls love pink and in due course the favorite color changes. Mine was initially pink too and later it kept changing that by now I have named almost all the colors as my favorite sometime of my life :P

What so ever! Pink was my first favorite color and I still love it :) Anything in pink makes me feel girly girly and soft.

So a freaking pink rice can never be denied by me or any kids ;) isn't it?

The subtle taste of saunf and the light sweetness of beets makes this rice so yummy :)

Beets pulao1


Rice - 1 cup
Beetroot - 2
Onion - 1 large
Green chillies - 2
Saunf/fennel/sombu - 1 tsp
Salt - for taste
Curry leaves

Beets pulao3


Wash, peel and cook the beets in microwave or pressure pan. Once cooked, grate and keep it aside.

Chop onion finely.

Wash and soak rice for half an hour. Pressure cook with two cups of water. Once done allow it to cool on a plate. Add a tsp of ghee to the rice and separate the grains.

Take a pan and add a tsp of oil, drop in the curry leaves and saunf followed by chopped onions and split chillies. Fry till the onion turns golden brown. Now add the grated beets along with some salt and fry just for few mins.

Now mix in the rice along with the vegetables thoroughly.

Yummy, simple and pinky betts pulao is ready to eat :)

Enjoy making :) Freak your kids with pinky pink rice :)

You can add gharam masala powder or the spices(bay leaf,cloves and cinnamon) directly as well to give it additional flavoring.

You can powder the saunf and add it to avoid kids removing it from the rice.

I stopped rice two months ago, however I assume this will end when I visit my parents next month.

I like red and blue colours. Most of my shirts are either blue or light red. My mother always selects pink for me, so I have 5-6 pink shirts. :)

Pulao was once my favorite dish and is now my most favorite dish as I do not have it often.

Beetroot pachadi is a dish my mother prepared for lunch and it tastes awsome. The entire rice turns red.

I do not have any comments on the pictures as no one would now comment that " AR rehman again did a good music in this album or Amitabh bacchan is again a good actor"... they are and so you are... ;)
