Hi all, today I am sharing a healthy, quick and delicious recipe of Beetroot, Potato and Peas pulao that you can ideally make on a busy day for lunch. The whole process of chopping, sautéing and cooking takes less than 25 minutes and you get a flavorful and delicious pulao. You can serve this pulao with Kadai paneer, Kung Pao chicken or any other gravy of your choice. 

I usually make this pulao once on a while as it is loaded with veggies and my daughter doesn't complaint about the veggies. The veggies somehow blend into the rice and hence kids will not have a problem in having this Pulao for lunch or dinner. This time I served the Pulao with a peppery Egg gravy, (the recipe of it will follow shortly in my blog) along with onion raita and the combination tasted amazing.

So, let's move on to the recipe of Beetroot Potato and Peas pulao

Serves: 4

2 cups rice 
4 cups water
1 medium beetroot cut into small pieces
1 large potato cut into small pieces
1/4 cup green peas
1 onion sliced
1 tsp garlic paste
1 tsp ginger paste
3 tomatoes chopped (seeds removed)
3 to 4 tbsp oil
1 cardamom, 1 cinnamon
1 tsp cumin powder
1 1/4 tsp red chilli powder (or to taste)
1/2 tsp garam masala powder
1 ½ tsp salt (or to taste)
A handful of chopped coriander leaves


  • Wash and soak the rice in water for at least 10 minutes.
  • Heat oil in a pressure cooker; add cardamom, cinnamon and onions and sauté till onions turn golden.
  • Then add garlic paste and ginger paste, and saute till the raw smell goes.
  • Next add chopped tomatoes, cumin powder, garam masala powder, red chilli powder and salt. Mix well and cook till oil starts separating.
  • Then add the chopped beetroots, potatoes, peas and chopped coriander leaves and mix well.
  • Cook for about 2 minutes.
  • Then add 4 cups water and bring the water to a boil.
  • Now drain the water from the rice and add the rice to the cooker, stir for a minute.
  • Then close the lid and pressure cook for 10 minutes or up to 3 whistles. 
  • Serve hot.
