Beetroot Rice

Rice - 1cup
Beetroot - 2 small
Red chili powder - 1/4 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Mustard - 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves - Few
Green chilly -2 slit lengthwise
Salt as required
Oil - 2tbs

Cook the rice and keep aside. I used basmati rice. You can use any rice of your choice.

Peel the outer skin of the beetroot, wash nicely & grate it. Heat oil in a pan add mustard seeds, when it splutters add curry leaves, green chili followed by the grated beetroot. Now add red chili powder, turmeric powder, salt and mix it nicely and cover with the lid and allow it to get cooked. No need to add water. When it is done add the cooked rice to it, mix well and remove from fire.

Transfer to a plate and serve. Kids will love to eat colorful rice.
