VEGETABLE PULAO

Photobucket

Requested by my son to cook the vegetable pulao taken with spicy tomato chicken. Simple and yummy treat for the day. You can add beans, peas, potato but I'm using carrot because that what I have in stock. Addition of chilli powder and turmeric enhance the taste of this dish but also give a nice colour.

VEGETABLE PULAO

2 cups basmati rice (soak 30 minutes then drain)
1 cup vegetables (bean, carrot, potato) cut
4 tablespoons oil/ghee
2  big onions chopped
1 teaspoon garlic paste
1 teaspoon ginger paste
1 teaspoon chilli powder
1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
1 stick cinnamon
2 cardamoms
2 cloves
1 bay leaf
1/2 cup coriander leaf chopped
1 cup evaporated milk
2 cups water
salt

METHOD

1. Heat oil, add in cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, bay leaf and onion, fry until light brown.

2. Add ginger, garlic, chilli powder, turmeric and coriander leaves, stir well.

3. Pour in vegetables and little water, cook until slightly soft.

4. Now add the rice, salt, milk and water, when the water is boiling, reduce flame, cover the pot and cook till the rice is done.

5. Sprinkle with coriander leaf at the time of serving.
