Beetroot Rice – Kids Favourite Rice Dish

Beetroot rice

Serve this pretty dome of Beetroot rice with full of flavours to any kid with fussy eating habits and witness how delightfully he will polish the plate off in minutes!  Make a cheerful food art blending several other colours and kids will go crazy!

This is definitely a very clever way to include beetroot into your kid’s diet.  The vibrant glossy red colour, the natural sweetness of beetroot and the most uncomplicated way of making it preserves all the goodness, flavours and colour in the dish.

What is special in this recipe is that it tastes simply the best on its own without any accompaniment.  However, I add a sliced boiled egg and scatter some poppadums when I serve older kids.  For little ones, just serve as uncomplicated as it is!

Cooked Rice 1

Onion 1
Garlic 3 cloves
