Beetroot Veggie Rice

Beetroot is one of the most healthiest vegetables out there and the pink color it bleeds to dishes is a pretty sight. This recipe is one for the health conscious people but at the same time ensuring that taste and flavor are not compromised. Peas and corn add to the different colors in this dish. The beauty of this dish is that it can be eaten on it’s own or with some curry or fried eggs as an add on.
