Beetroot Rice

If you like rice and want to have every day. There are lots of ways that you can use to make your rice more healthy, colorful, and flavorful.

Recently, I made beetroot rice which looks so yummy and the tastes are, even more, yummy. In the recipe, I have used 1/2 beetroot and there stem to give my rice natural orange color. If you want to make rice red you can increase the quantity of beetroot.

Making this dish is so easy, first, peeled and chopped the beetroot and boil for a few minutes. Then drain the water and cook rice in that water and it’s done. After making the rice you can also use the boiled beetroot to make a beetroot stir fry or beetroot salad. I have served this colorful rice with chickpea salad but it can be also served with any curry/soup/daal.

Make this easy, healthy rice and let me know how it went. Feel free to ask me any question related to my recipes. I would love to hear from you.
