Veg Pulav with curd

Its not a very difficult rice to make.. yet anyday.anytime..everyone will like this flavoured rice. This time I added a special ingredient "Curd" and made in rice cooker taking the recipe from Vahchef

  • 1 cup of basmati rice
  • 1 cup veggies of your choice
  • 1/4 of chopped onions
  • 2 green chillies(finely chopped)
  • 3 or 4 pepper corns
  • 1 cup of chopped mint and cilantro
  • 2 tbsp of curd
  • 1 tsp of ginger garlic paste
  • whole garam masala or garam masala powder
  • 2 tbsp of ghee or oil or a mix of both
  • Soak the rice in the required amount of water for 15 minutes(I used 1:2 ratio)
  • Heat oil or ghee in a kadai and add the whole garam masala to it.
  • Once the cumin seeds splutter, add the chopped onions and saute for few minutes.Do not make it brown.
  • Add ginger garlic paste to this mixture.
  • After 2 minutes , add the green chillies & pepper corns.
  • Then add the mint and cilantro and fry till you get the nice aroma.
  • Now add the curd and mix well.
  • Finally add the chopped veggies and saute for a few minutes.
  • Add salt and garam masala if needed.
  • Finally mix with the rice-water mixture and keep in rice cooker.

Serving suggestions
  • Serve with any raitha of your choice and some pickle or simply some chips !
  • You can also use normal cooker and keep for 2 whistles.
