Beetroot Pulao1 Beetroot Pulao, a color fl platter with full aromatic flavours, i saw lot of recipes for beetroot pulao, this one is special and i fixed this procedure to my own style, of how i make other vegie rice bowls..

Beetroots are very good vegetable to health, which had many more beneficial character in it.. but how long having the same beetroot poriyal, thooran, raita.. why not step on to other taste.. usually beetroots had root smell in it, in beetroot rice recipe, i used some spices and masala’s to over come the smell.. but here i used my biryani procedure and completely this was a yum yum platter, serve with some raita, salads. this will be the great one.. i always face the challenge of feeding vegetable to Jess, Some time using these kind of techniques, i’ll be happy for him.. okay here you go with the recipe..

  • This is a bit spicy pulao, i should mention here, i used 2 green chillies for saluting, and 1 green to grind and 1/2 tsp of chilli powder to the grave part, so adjust the spice to your taste level.. 
  • can use some Coconut milk, and 2 tsp of curd too vary some taste..
