I love the presence of beetroot in my kitchen pantry. Besides adding a pop of colour, it also lends loads of nutritional properties. I usually add this special veggie to my salads and sandwiches; but this time, it decided to add it to my rice, because, why not? Rice is an extremely popular dish, not just in India, but across various other cuisines. It owes its ubiquity to its versatility. Steamed or fried, plain or spiced - there's a host of recipes around rice you can find everywhere you go. In India, if plain rice is the most common, pulao comes a close second. And when we talk about pulao, aloo pulao is what comes to the mind first. Here, we have a recipe that adds the distinct characteristics of beetroot. Aloo pulao becomes beetroot pulao with this easy-peasy recipe.
As per the book, 'Healing Foods', by DK Publishing, "Beets contain a unique group of antioxidants called betacyanins, which help greatly in boosting the immune system." Another feature that makes beetroot an excellent immunity-boosting food is that it is loaded with vitamin C.
So, it only makes sense to add this veggie in our recipes, including pulao.
