Green Pulav

This is a pulav I grew up eating. These pulavs were considered as some fancy dishes at home. So aayi would prepare them once in a while and we would go crazy over them. It is very simple to make, healthy and very delicious.

2 cups basmati rice
1 cup chopped vegetables(Green beans,Cauli flower,Carrot,potatoes etc)
1/2 cup onion
7-8 strands coriander leaves
2 tea spns ginger-garlic paste
3-4 cloves
2 cardamom
2″ cinnamon
4-5 green chillies

Soak rice for 10min in water then let it dry by spreading on a cloth.
Make a paste of coriander leaves and green chillies. Heat ghee in a pan. Add cloves, cinnamon, cardamom, fry them for few minutes. Add onions, ginger-garlic paste, coriander paste and fry till onions turn slightly brownish. Add rice and fry for sometime. Add all vegetables. Fry for 5mins. Add about 4 cups of water and salt. Cover the lid and let it cook. After about 10mins of cooking, open the lid and check. If all water is evaporated and rice is not yet done, add more water. For better results, cook on medium heat. (Avoid mixing the pulav when it is cooking, the rice gets mashed if mixed again and again. It can be gently stirred once in a while). Serve hot with raita(carrot, tomato, onion, coriander leaves, green chilies, salt mixed in yogurt).

Serves : 4
Preparation time : 40 min
