Vegetable Pulao

This is the one recipe which I learnt from my mom she does it so delicious that i used to just love it a lot , this rice has got a lot of flavour in it and my mom used to even put fried bread pieces which used to compliment the rice very well . Today when I was thinking of what to cook I suddenly remembered her veg pulao and thought of doing that.


1/2 cup Basmathi Rice

2-3 cloves

1' dalchini

2 Green Elaichi

1/4 cup chopped green coriander leaves

2 onion ( 1 Sliced , 1 chopped)


2-3 flakes of garlic

2-3 green chillies

1/2 cup mixed vegetable (carrot, cauliflower, beans)

2 slices of bread (cubes and fried) (opt)

salt to taste

2 tbsp oil


  • Cut all vegs and par boil them with salt and keep aside.
  • Soak the basmati rice for 30 mins. Then cook it till 3/4 done .
  • Mix in little salt and oil, so that the rice doesn't stick to each other.
  • Grind Cloves, dalchini, ginger, elaichi , coriander leaves, green chilli, 1 onion (sliced), garlic to a smooth paste adding little water.
  • Heat oil in a pan add this ground paste and fry well it is gives out nice aroma and it leaves out oil, then add the chopped onion and fry well now add boiled vegetables and mix well.
  • Now mix the rice and simmer and cook for 5-10 mins . Before serving add the bread pieces and toss well .
  • Serve with raita of your choice.
