Mixed Veggies & Sprouted Moong Pulao

I love to make simple rice or pulao with sprouted beans, recently i sprouted a packet of green moong beans, with these sprouted moong beans i prepared many dishes and finally some leftover beans were sitting in my fridge and i wanted to finish them quickly as something delicious, quick and easy...Finally i went for this simple pulao with simple ingredients and curd instead of using coconut milk or fresh grated coconut for making a grounded masala to prepare this pulao, u doesnt need anything special to make out this delicious and nutritious pulao as they go for quick preparation..Best way to sneak these protein packed whole moong beans and we enjoyed having with simple onion raita...U can store this beautiful and healthy sprouts pulao in a ziplock bag and freeze them, this pulao will stay intact for more than three weeks and get ready within few minutes if they warmed through microwave oven..

Mixed Veggies & Moong Sprouts Pulao

2cups Basmati rice
2cups Mixed Veggies (carrots, green peas, cauliflowers, french beans)
1cup Sprouted green moongbeans
1no Onion (big & chopped)
2nos Tomatoes (chopped)
2nos Green chillies (slit opened)
1tsp Cumin seed powder
1/2tsp Fennel seed powder
1tsp Coriander powder
1/2tsp Red chilly powder
1/2tsp Pepper powder
1tsp Garam masala powder
1tbsp Ginger garlic paste
2cups Yogurt
2cups Water
Few mint leaves (chopped)
2nos Whole spices (bayleaves, cinnamon stick, cloves, cardamom)
Oil
Salt

Heat enough oil in a pressure cooker,fry the whole spices until they turns brown, meanwhile wash and soak the basmati rice for 5minutes..drain the excess of water, keep aside..now add the chopped onions, chopped tomatoes, ginger garlic paste, slit opened green chillies to the pressure cooker, saute until the onions turns transculent and the raw smell goes away, now add the sprouted moong beans along with salt, cook in simmer with lid closed for few minutes until they turns bit soft, add now the veggies along with pepper powder, cumin seed powder, fennel seed powder, red chilly powder, coriander powder, garam masala powder, saute everything until the veggies get half cooked...meanwhile heat few drops of oil, roast the soaked rice until they get a shiny texture..

Mix the yogurt with water, add them to the cooking veggies...bring everything to boil, add immediately the rice,stir everything, close the pressure cooker with the lid, put the weight..cook in simmer for 10minutes, put off the stove..Once the pressure get released, add the chopped mint leaves, toss gently and serve immediately..

Enjoy with any sort of raita eventhough my choice goes definitely for onion raita..
