Vegetable Pulao/ Namkeen Rice

Last Updated on

Vegetable pulao is an all-time favourite of my family. It’s
a north Indian vegetarian rice dish. Vegetable pulao is a complete meal with
lots of vegetable. Here I’m posting a simple method to make a really tasty pulao;
I cook this rice in thick and heavy bottomed vessel with lots of mixed veggies.
You can upgrade this vegetable pulao with your likes or suitability and non-vegetarian
can add meat stuff whatever you like. Serve it with any veg side dish like gravy
or simply enjoy this pulao with raita, papad, chutney or pickle…
