How to make Vegetable Pulao

  1. In a pressure cooker, add ghee along with cardamom, cloves, cinnamon stick and bay leaf. Saute until fragrant.
  2. Now add onions, green chilies, ginger-garlic paste and mint leaves. Fry until onions turn transparent.
  3. Drop in vegetables in to this and fry for 3 minutes. Add in salt, red chili powder and garam masala. Combine well. To this add rice, coconut milk and water. Stir and cook for 2 whistles.
  4. Gently stir rice, when the pressure settles down. Adjust salt, add chopped coriander leaves and 1 tbsp. ghee. Serve warm with raita or any curry.
  5. Alternatively you can even cook this in an electric cooker. Cooking in electric cooker helps you to check whether rice is getting cooked properly or not.
My Tip: 1) Go for electric cooker cooking because it evades issues like mushed rice or overcooked vegetables which are inevitable with pressure cooker cooking. 2) You can use any vegetables of your choice but remember this ratio of 1 cup rice = 2 cups of vegetables 3) Usage of coconut milk is optional but it gives richness. Replace coconut milk with water. 4) You can even add pepper powder if you find pulao very bland. 5) You can do the cooking in a pan and use left over rice. Just mix and rest do the talking.
