Ingredients used in Beetroot and beans briyani
• Ginger - 1 inch piece.

1.

Add Finely chopped ginger and garlic and fry till the raw smell disappears 5. Add finely chopped cilantro,mint,methi leaves and fry for a minute till the aroma spreads 6. add finely chopped tomato and fry for 3 minutes 7. add garam masala ,turmeric powders and fry for 5 minutes.The powders should b cooked well . 8. add the beetroot and lima beans,and fry till the betetroot gets 1/2 cooked(say 6-7 minutes),Add salt to taste 9. Now add the fried rice, 1 cup milk /coconut and 1.5 cups of water. If you are going to use a MW cooked, Empty the contents into the cooker and MW high for 20 minutes.

Just wonderful. It came out very delicious. Color was quite impressive. There was "wow" expression by everyone when served. Thanks for the recipe. There is already demand at home to cook second time. Bravo.... Credit goes to you.
