Vegetable Pulao or Pulav is a one-pot rice variety. It is very easy to prepare. Pulao is the first dish that comes to my mind whenever I have fresh green beans, carrots, and peas are in stock. Here, I have used frozen peas in this recipe. Feel free to experiment with other veggies like cauliflower, baby corn, broccoli, cabbage, and potato.

There are several varieties of pulao/pulav, which are green peas pulao, sweet corn pulao, cashew pulao, paneer pulao, Kashmiri pulav...the list goes on. I love all the varieties and planning to post it in my blog as and when I make, so stay tuned to Pavi's Kitchen. Alright without any further delay let's get into the recipe.

How to make veg pulao:


1. Take a wide thick bottomed pan. Keep it on a medium flame. Pour some ghee. Once it is hot, add cumin seeds. When it's slightly roasted, start adding all the spices one by one. Fry for a minute.

2. Crush the ginger and garlic using the pestle and mortar and add it to the ghee. Then add the green chilies and fry for a minute. (Note - I didn't have chili in hand, so I didn't add in this step).

3. Now, its time to add the sliced onion and saute until it turns translucent. (Note: Sprinkle some salt to speed up the process).

4. Start adding beans, carrots, peas, and mix it well. Fry them until the raw smell of veggies goes. This takes about 3 to 5 mins.

5. Now, its time to add soaked basmati rice and combine everything.

6. Add 2 cups of water. (Note: The measurement ratio is 1:2 which means for 1 cup of rice, add 2 cups of water).

7.  Add enough salt and cover it with a lid. keep the flame in medium and let it cook for 15 mins.

8. After 15 mins, open the lid and check the pulao by inserting a fork or toothpick. If the fork comes out clean, then the pulao has cooked well. If not, cover it with a lid for another 3 to 5 mins. Add some fresh cilantro or coriander leaves on top and serve it with raita or any sabzi of your choice.

Spicy ghee flavored vegetable pulao is ready to be served.
