    When U cook the rice with Beet and Veggies, ( Yogurt & water) won’t the entire rice change its colour to ( beet’s color), I am bit worried, if so then can the rice be precooked and cooled, ( Make the Veggie gravy as per your recipe and cook the veggies with beet) and then finally mix them all. I don’t know , may be I am wrong,

      Ofcourse this pulav would look light purple, the proportion given is for 2 cups rice and your using just a medium size beet, cannot turn the entire pulav red. Its half cooked before its actually mixed with rice, as you are sauteing for few seconds over the stove. I've made clear that only beet juice and grated beet tend to mess and with cubed beets its not that instense. Your suggestion also works, but you know… its all a matter of time, just pop everything in the rice cooker and it will be ready in 15 minutes.
