To Temper:

Oil
2 tsp
Cinnamon
1 inch stick
Clove
2
Cardamom
1
Star Anise

Bay Leaf
1
Annasi Mokku
1
Onion (medium size)
1
Green Chili
2

Procedure:
1. Wash and rinse the rise twice. Soak the rice with 1 cup of water for 15 mins. Then drain the water and keep it aside. Keep this water for later use.
2. Heat the oil in a pressure cooker, add whole spices (cinnamon, cloves, bay leaf, star anise, cardamom, annasi mokku ) and fry for few seconds.
3. Add chopped onion and sauté till the onion becomes translucent.
4. Add chopped green chilies. Fry for few seconds.
5. Add ginger garlic paste and sauté for few seconds.
6. Add grated beetroot and sauté for 1 mins.
7. Then add chopped beetroot, 2 cups of water ( 1 cup normal water + 1 cup rice soaked water (from 1) ) and salt.
8. When the water starts boil, add soaked rice and mix them well.
9. Close the pressure cooker with its lid and wait till the steam comes out. Put the whistle immediately when the steam comes out from the cooker lid and keep the flame at very low. Cook for 12-14 mins. [if whistle does not come, don’t worry about it]
10. After 12 mins switch off the flame. Once pressure has gone completely, open the cooker and transfer the pulao into a wide bowl. Mix the pulao gently with the fork.
    
Yummy, colorful and aromatic pulao is reday to serve. Serve with raitha.

Note:
1. I have used jeeraga samba rice. You use basmathi rice also.
2. Adjust the green chilies according to your spice level.
