Beetroot Pulao Recipe with step by step instructions.తెలుగు వెర్షన్.
Beetroot can be used in a variety of dishes like beetroot chutney, beetroot pickle, beetroot pulao, beetroot stir fry, halwa, kheer, and salads.I make the above recipes very often.beetroot pulao is very tasty and healthy recipe.
Some people avoid beetroot in cooking because of its sweet taste.you can’t taste any sweetness after cooking beetroot pulao.some people add beetroot pieces while making pulao.but I would like to suggest you to use grated beetroot to avoid the sweet taste.
Beetroot pulao is a spicy and colorful rice recipe.it alone tastes good without any accompaniment.but tastes even better when served with onion raitha.I have used long grained/basmati rice for this preparation.but you can also use normal rice.for normal rice, the ratio of water and soaked rice should be 1:2.
you can customize the recipe as you wish.like adding potatoes, mushrooms, cauliflower or paneer(cottage cheese) white sautéing the onions.but the quantity of any extra vegetables should not exceed the main ingredient i.e beetroot.
