Beetroot Rice

This is a healthy and yummy rice. Very easy to put together and I absolutely love the color.
- 2 beetroot peeled and chopped (I included the greens and the stem on the top and chopped them finely and added it.)
- 1 onion chopped
- 2 green chili chopped
- 1 cup peas
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 2 tsp garam masala
- 1 tsp roasted jeera powder
- 1 tsp coriander powder
- 1/4 cup peanuts
- 1 cup rice washed
- 2 tbsp chopped mint leaves
- 1 tbsp chopped coriander leaves
- salt to taste

- 1 tsp oil
- few cloves
- 1 tsp jeera
few curry leaves

1. In a pot add oil and the seasoning ingredients. Once they brown add the peanuts and fry it. They should become slightly crisp.
2. Now add the chilies, onions and fry them till they turn slightly brown. Add the chopped beetroot pour 1/4th cup of oil and cook till it is half cooked.
3. Now mix in the greens and the stem. Also add the peas now. Mix in the uncooked rice. Add all the masala (garam masala, coriander powder, cumin powder, chili powder) and salt. Mix it in and cook for a couple of minutes
4. Now add 2 cups of hot water. Bring down the heat cover and cook till the rice becomes soft.
5. Add the chopped methi leaves and coriander leaves and mix them all well.

Serve it hot with raita or pickles.



K & G, that looks colorful and tempting bowl.
