Vegetable pulav

Vegetable pulav is a great rice dish which compliments any kind of gravy. Its a wonderful blend of fragrant whole spices, vegetables and rice. Its fairly easy to make and is the perfect dish for any special occasion. I made it for my husband's birthday and he loved it :-)

So here goes the recipe....

Basmati rice- 1cup
Carrot cubed -1/2 cup
Green peas- 1/4 cup
Frozen Corn-1/4 cup
Capsicum chopped- 1/2 cup
Finely chopped onions- 1 cup
Ginger Garlic paste-1tsp
Ghee- 4TB
Bay leaf-1
Cinnamon-2 small sticks
Star anise-1


Soak the basmati rice in water for half an hour. Fry the bay leaf and one of the cinnamon sticks in 2TB of ghee. Add half of the onions in the ghee and fry until golded brown. Drain the water from the basmati rice and add the rice to the onions and fry for a couple of minutes. Transfer this mixture into a rice cooker. Add salt and 2 cups of water and let it cook.

In another pan add the remaining spices, onions, vegetables and the ginger garlic paste. Fry for 3 minutes. Add the cooked rice to the vegetable mixture and add salt if needed. Toss the rice with vegetables until the rice and vegetables mix together. Garnish with pieces of lemon or tomatoes. Serve hot.
Hope y'all enjoy this recipe!!
