Recipe Notes for Beetroot rice

If you make use of hot rice, they will be soft and mushy resulting into a lumpy beetroot pulao, so make sure the rice grains are cooled completely before adding.

    2.    You can cook the rice in a pan or the cook the rice in  pressure cooker. Also, the grain type i.e. short grain or long-grained depends on your preference. Ideally, pulao recipes are made using long grained basmati rice which is aged and aromatic to get the perfect texture.

    3.    We will be using grated beetroot in the beetroot rice recipe, but to have a unique bite you can even add around ¼ cup of chopped beetroot.
