Here is the video of how to make Vegetable Pulao

This vegetable pulao is an excellent one pot dish that can be put together in minutes. Its perfect for the lunch box or as a make ahead for parties. Its a very easy bachelor friendly recipe. I have used canned coconut milk today for this recipe.

Wash and soak the rice in water before starting to cook. Let the rice soak for atleast 20 minutes. Soaking the rice is my secret to get fluffy rice at the end.

I have used a 5 liter pressure cooker for making this recipe today. Heat oil in a pan and add in the cardamom, cloves and cinnamon. Add in the sliced onions, salt and fry till the onions are soft.

Grind the ginger, garlic and fennel seeds (soambu) with quarter cup of water to a smooth paste. Add it to the pan along with sliced green chillies. Saute till the mixture is cooked and dry.

Add in the diced veggies, coconut milk and water.

Add in the drained rice. Cover the pressure pan and cook on a medium flame for exactly 2 whistles.

NOTE: If finishing the cooking in the oven, preheat the oven – 400F for 10 minutes. Once the rice mixture comes to a boil, transfer the mixture to a heavy pan, cover the pan with a lid and cook in the oven for 20 minutes. Rest for 10 minutes before serving.

Remove from heat and wait for the pressure to settle for 15 minutes. Open the cooker and fluff up.

Serve with vegetable kurma or chicken kurma.
