Easy Vegetable Pulao Recipe - Pressure Cooker Method

Finally the drizzles are here and I'm loving the climate completely hope this continues for the coming days as well......Had a busy week both at work and home.More busy days ahead, so am trying to keep myself prepared for them.

Coming to todays recipe vegetable pulao : This is a easy and filling one pot meal....It just needs raita to finish off the bowl. Only chopping the veggies is time consuming and even for that my chopper comes to the rescue :) If thats ready this pulao can be done in a jiffy.

The aroma of ghee with vegetables in rice.....hmm yummmmy!! I am not a fan of restaurant pulaos becos most of them have strong flavours of the spices....I like mine to be less flavoured and thats the reason I started trying out pulaos at home :)

Vegetable Pulao/Pulav RecipeMy Notes:
  • Dont add more mint leaves as the flavour will be strong.
  • You can also add other vegetables like potato and cauliflower.
