Green vegetable pulav

Vegetable Pulav is every one's favourite dish. My kids love it! Its a best way to get them to eat few veggis if they are fussy eaters. Its easy to make & tasty too....


Basmati Rice - 2cups
Corriander Leaves - 1 bunch
Ginger-garlic paste - 1 tsp
Green chillies - 6no
Coconut - 2 tbspns
Onion - 2
Oil - 2 tbspns
Ghee - 1 tsp
Cinnamon - 1" piece
Cloves - 4
Bayleaf - 1
Elaichi - 1
Green Beans, Carrot, Potato, Cauliflower, Peas - all together - 2 cups.


1. Chop all vegetables into 1" long pieces. Slice the onions & set aside.

2. Wash basmati rice & keep ready.
3. Grind together - Corriander leaves, green chillies & coconut to a fine paste.

4. In a pan add oil & ghee, then add the whole spices - Cinnamon, cloves, bayleaf & elaichi.

5. Add the sliced onions & ginger-garlic paste, & saute for 2-3 minutes. Then add the vegetables & fry all for 5 minutes.

6. Now add the ground green masala & fry till the raw smell goes off.

7. Now add the washed rice & mix all together for about 5-7n minutes, till its all blended well. Add required salt.

8. Add 4 & 1/4 cups of water in a rice cooker & then trasfer these ingredients from the pan into it. Mix all well & turn on the rice cooker, till done.

Very soon your home will be filled with the aroma of pulav & you'll be ready to serve a mouthwatering dish..... Serve hot !!
