  • 1/2 cup each milk curd and green peas

How to make Vegetarian Parda Pulao

  1. Mix the vegetables with curd and the ready biryani mix, add salt mix and refrigerate for 12 hours but 1/2 an hour is okay.
  2. Mix the flour with sugar and ghee.With water knead to a soft dough. Cover and set aside.
  3. Whisk the egg and reserve to use as egg wash. (If using) I used plain milk.
  4. Pre-heat the oven at 220°C. Cook the rice on the stove top and set aside to cool.
  5. Heat ghee, add sliced onions and sauté till golden. Add the vegetables and cook till al dente .
  6. Once vegetables are done, adjust the thickness of the gravy with a little milk, check the seasoning and reserve.
  7. Dissolve the saffron in the balance milk. In an oven-proof dish add the vegetable with the gravy first.
  8. Add the rice and fried onion. Drizzle all the saffron milk.
  9. Roll out the dough into a sheet large enough to cover the pan, sealing the sides. Brush the egg wash on the dough,(if using) or milk wash the dough.
  10. Place in the oven and cook till the dough acquires a light brown colour on top and it’s cooked through.
  11. Cut away one-half of the dough from the centre to release the fragrance.
  12. Serve with raita of your choice.
