Beetroot Pulav

This dish has been in my mind for a while, which I wanted to try after tasting it in one of the picnic parties I attended. The recipe is just similar to ghee rice recipe except instead of onions we use beetroot here.
We need....
1 cup finely grated beetroot
3 green chillies+ 3 pods garlic+a big piece of ginger- grind to a fine paste
Spices - cloves, bay leaves, cardamom - according to your taste.
1 sp ghee
3 cups rice - washed and drained- Basmati Rice tastes divine.

Method:
In a nonstick pan add ghee when its melted add all the spices. Saute few seconds, add chilli and garlic paste. Few minutes later add grated beetroot. Keep mixing it for couple more minutes until the raw smell goes. Add rice and mix well. Transfer this mixture to rice cooker add 3 cups of water and cook it. Goes well with onion raita or cucumber raita with some papadams.
