Vegetable Pulao

Vegetable pulao is a quick and simple stir fry of veggies which is then pressure cooked along with rice. As simple as that. If you like very simple flavors without too much drama in them , this is for you. I am not a big fan of vegetable pulao, but S likes this very much. Also a quick lunch box preparation menu.

Vegetable Pulao


Ingredients

 Serves - 2
 Spice Level - Mild
 
Fresh/Frozen peas - 1/2 cup
Carrot - 2 chopped well
Potato - 1 large, chopped into small pieces
Cauliflower - 5 large florets, chopped into small pieces
Green chilli - 4, slit lengthwise
Ginger-garlic [GG] paste 1 Tbsp
Onion - 1 Large , chopped finely
Bay leaf - 1
cloves - 2
Cinnamon - 1 inch stick - 1
Oil - 2 Tbsp
Salt - as per taste
Basmati rice - 1.5 cups soaked in water for 10 minutes and drained.
Water - 2.25 cups


Method

Heat a kadai with oil. Add bay-leaf, cloves , cinnamon. Let it roast. Add onions, GG paste,and green chilli. Saute till the onions are done.Add the veggies now and saute well. After 2-3 minutes,add salt and stir. Continues sauteing until the veggies are half done. Now add in the rice and stir for a minute or two.Switch off flame.

Empty the rice and veggies into the pressure cooker. Add 2.25 cups of water. Add enough salt into the cooker vessel and mix well. You should be able to taste the salt a  tiny bit more than the normal salt taste needed. That is the right amount.

Pressure cook for 12-15 minutes. Serve with a nice roasted eggplant/potato curry and raitha. :)
