Beetroot Pulao Recipe | Beetroot Pulav | Lunch Box Recpes

Beetroot Pulao or beetroot rice also we can call this is easy one pot meal which can make in jiffy and also do lot of variations with it. Beetroot pulao makes excellent lunch box recipe or even perfect comfort meal for weekend. Whether you like beetroot or not you will like this recipe as it's slightly sweet, spicy and flavorful with all the garam masala we used. We can also use coconut milk for extra flavors.

I love beetroot and that's not a secret here as I have posted ample of beetroot recipes and I always have beetroot stock with me, yes always :) and I make this pulao whenever I want to finish cooked fast without much hassle. I have taken this pulao pictures so many times and recently during the capsicum raita but since I lost the pictures I couldn't post this recipe before. I made this again a week back for weekend lunch and clicked pictures again hoping this time it will make it to blog :) and finally it's happening.


I have used capsicum instead of peas and it taste yum too so you can try that, or you can also add other vegetables like potato, cauliflower, beans etc to make it more nutritious and wholesome specially for kids. I pair this raita along variety of raita like capsicum raita, onion-tomato raita, cucumber raita and this time I paired along carrot raita, which recipe I will post soon. Meanwhile enjoy this delicious pulao.
