Beetroot Pulao Recipe | Preethi's Electric Pressure Cooker | Beetroot Pulao



Beetroot Pulao or Beetroot Rice recipe is an excellent way of encouraging kids to eat healthy food. I have mentioned it umpteenth times in past about my love for one pot meals. So much easier to put everything in a same pot and TaDa your are done ! Paneer Pulao, Masala Khichdi, Egg Biryani, Mumbai Tawa Pulao Recipe are to name a few which I have posted in past.
This ain't any secret that I love beetroot, the bright color attracts my attention and the beautiful color it adds to any dish is the charming factor of beetroot. My post searched recipes are Beetroot Lolipops, Beet-Aloo'r Torkari, Beetroot Soup to name a few. But my proud recipe which has been tried by several readers and co-blogger friends is Bengali Style Beetroot Chop. I have lost count of the number of readers who came back to me with superb feedbacks. 
Sindhi Biryani Masala actually cuts down the sweetness of beetroot in this dish and makes it slightly spicy. Well my son enjoys it whenever I pack him this as lunch box tiffin.
I am sure you are going to love this colored one pot rice with raita and salad.
 Friends, btw can you imagine a day without your kitchen gadgets ? I am totally dependent on kitchen gadgets for my daily needs. So I carefully choose and use kitchen appliances which are easy to use, hassle free, safe and efficient. So when I was approached by Preethi Kitchen Appliances Pvt. Ltd; for trying their Electric Pressure Cooker I readily said yes. It was more so to check the quality and cost effectiveness of this brand. This company is based out of Chennai and is a well known brand across the country. When I probed more about the company I became aware that what began as a humble mixer-grinder enterprise in 1978 has grown exponentially. Their Auto Cooker/Warmers, Induction Cook Tops, Electric Pressure Cookers and Coffee Makers are just among a few products that have found a home amongst families across the world. What I liked most is that they have constantly upgraded products to improve the quality of life for many families.


 Unlike in old times when the mere mention of pressure cooker used to frighten many homemakers due to safety reasons. Well not anymore. Today's electric pressure cookers are life savers in terms of reducing cooking time and loaded with safety backups. The inner body is non stick so it saves oil and cleaning after cooking is a breeze !

Some of the key features of the electric pressure cooker are as follows:
  • 1   Accurate pressure and temperature control system
  • 2   Cool touch handle for safety
  • 3    Anti steam ejection technology
  • 4    Digital Timer and preset function
  • 5    Micro computer control/Soft touch controls
  • 6   Texture control function
  •  On demand pressure function
  • 8   24 hour present timer
I     Being a big fan of one pot meals as they are quick and wholesome meals,  I tried my first one pot meal with Preethi's Electric Pressure Cooker and voila ! It came out fantastic ! 
       
    Ingredients:
    2 cup Basmati rice, Soak for 20 minutes
    1/4 cup Cauliflower, bite- sized florets 
    1/4 cup Beetroot, grated
    1/4 cup Green peas
    1/4 cup Corn
    1/4 cup Carrot, diced 
    2-3 Cardamoms
    1 small Javitriphool
    1 inch Cinnamon
    5-6 Pepper balls
    2 tbsp Ghee
    1 1/2 tsp Sindhi Biryani Masala (A spice store which has some very authentic spices, check out the link)
    Salt to taste
    4 cups of water
    
    Method:
      Rinse basmati twice or thrice and then soak it for minimum 20 minutes. Soak the cauliflowers in warm water with some salt and later drain out the excess water. Connect the power cord to the wall socket and switch on the electric cooker. Soon display will be on and a light will blink with a beep sound. Select 'Pulao/Biryani' on the control panel by pressing gently the button. 


      Select the texture mode and heat ghee in the inner pan and add raw spices, fry till it leaves aroma. Stir fry the carrot and cauliflower florets, this would take about 2-3 minutes. Add peas and corn and saute for 2-3 minutes again. Do sprinkle some salt to it. 
   
      

      Add rice, mix gently and add sindhi biryani masala along with salt. Stir gently and saute for a minute. Add grated beetroot now and you will see the color of rice changes into beautiful tone. Add 4 cups of water, mix well and now close the lid of electric pressure cooker.

    

      
       Now the pressure will build up. After cooking time, the cooker will give beep sound and it will automatically go to Keep Warm mode. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes. Then position the pressure release valve to release steam and open the lid. Voila ! Your Beetroot Pulao in an electric pressure cooker is ready. I found it very convenient and easy to use.
