Beetroot Pulao

The recipe of this delicious Beetroot Pulao was shared by my friend Jyothi Nayak Kamath. One pot meals are always a blessing since they can be eaten as is or can be served with some curd and a raw salad.


2 cups basmati rice cooked and ready

2 large onions sliced

1 cup beetroot finely chopped

1/2 cup chopped spinach

1/2 cup green peas cooked

1 inch piece of ginger

5 cloves of garlic

For the tempering:

3 tbsps Ghee/ clarified butter

2 tbsps oil

2 bay leaves

2 cardamom

1 tsp cumin seeds

1 tsp coriander seeds

4-5 cloves

1 inch cinnamon

1 1/2 teaspoon chilly powder


Heat the Ghee and oil mixture in a pan. Add the bay leaves. Toss. Add the onions and keep roasting till they are translucent. In the meantime powder the cloves, cinnamon, coriander and cardamom. Make a paste of the ginger and garlic. Once the onions turn translucent tip in the ginger garlic paste, the powdered spices, chilly powder and toss for a couple of minutes. Add the beetroot and spinach and saute till they are cooked. Drop in the green peas, rice and salt. Mix thoroughly, cover and heat the Pulao for about ten minutes on a gentle flame.
