This beetroot pulao is an amazing addition to the pulao family. Pulao, or pilaf as it is sometimes called is one of the oldest rice dishes in the world. And like many dishes of ancient origin, there are a lot of variations to it. The beetroot turns this pulao, which is traditionally a pretty savory dish into a surprisingly sweet one. Beets have always been a great mechanism for sweetening up a dish’s profile without having to add excess sugars, making this a very healthy option.
