HO HO HO Holiday Rice With Beets!!


 

Have we got a treat for you! We decided to spread some holiday cheer by cooking up this colorful and healthy rice dish for everyone to enjoy during the holidays. We call it HO HO HO Holiday Rice. We prepared it just in time for Christmas...so even Santa can have a taste.  I figured he's so used to eating cookies that he might like to try something new.


Main Ingredients
You can make 6-8 servings by using the ingredients listed below:
  • 1 large Beet Root, peeled and grated
  • 1½ cups Rice (prefer Basmati), washed and cooked
  • ½ cup Carrots & Peas (frozen)
  • 4 Green chilies, split lengthwise
  • 1" piece Ginger, chopped finely
  • 1/8 cup Fried onions
  • 1½ tbsp MTR Vangibhath powder
  • 4-5 leaves Curry leaves (optional)
  • 1 tsp each Whole Mustard and Cumin
  • 1 tbsp Black Gram Dal (optional)
  • 3-4 tbsp Vegetable oil
  • Salt, as needed
Procedure:
1) Cook rice with little less water than normal so that it separates individual grains. After the rice is done, separate it with a wooden spatula and add a tbsp oil to avoid sticking.
2) Heat oil in a saucepan, add mustard and cumin seeds, when they splutter, add the gram dal and stir until it is golden brown (1-2 min). Add green chilies and ginger and stir for 1min and add grated beetroot and ½ tsp salt mix well and place the lid and cook for 4-5 min.

3) Add another tsp of salt and cooked rice in portions mixing it with season until it is uniform. Mix in fried onions, frozen carrots & peas and vangibath powder, stir well and cook for 3-4 minutes.


4) Serve it hot garnished with fresh coriander.
