Vegetable Pulao

Aftet posting two delicious starters, am here to start today my main courses which i would like to serve if i'll organise a birthday party for my kid at home. Most of my followers know that am running fun filled blogging marathon for whole month of april and our first week's theme is occasional foods. Obviously i chosed to cook for a kid's birthday party as my daughter's birthday is approaching very soon. We cant imagine a party without rice that too for the main course, rice have their important place in South Indian menu. Even we serve rotis,naans or parottas, somehow most of my family members love to have atleast some rice if i invite them for a party or a get together.

Coming to today's post, its a vegetable pulao. I know someone is going to say that she was shocked to see that i didnt posted this usual pulao yet in my space. Yep sometimes its happens, wat to do. This pulao goes for a variety of veggies and gets ready quickly as well as very much easily. A prefect one pot meal, usually i'll make my pulaos through pressure cooker,but this time for a change i prepared them with heavy bottomed vessel and this method works out wonder too.If you love paneer,you can add them too..



2 cups Basmati rice soaked for 30 minutes
2+1/2cups Mixed veggies ( chopped cauliflower, carrots, green peas,babycorns, corn kernels,capsicums,frenchbeans)
1no Onion(sliced)
1tsp Ginger-garlic paste
2nos  Green chili(slit opened)
1no Tomato ( chopped)
1/2tsp Red chilly powder
1tsp Garam masala powder
4cups Water
3 tbsp Oil
Salt

For tempering:
1tsp Cumin seeds
1no Bay leaf
2-3nos Cloves
2nos Cardamoms
 inch cinnamon

Heat oil and fry all the whole spices until they turns brown.

Add the onions and cook until they turns transculent,add the ginger-garlic paste and saute for a minute.

Now add the tomatoes and slit opened green chilies and saute for 2-3 minutes on a low flame.

Finally add all the veggies,red chilly powder,garam masala powder and saute again for few minutes on a low flame.

Add the rice and saute for 2 minutes on a low flame.

Now add the water, sal and cook everything in medium high flame for few minutes and finish the cooking with low flame until the rice gets well cooked.

Serve this pulao with raita of your choice.
