  • To begin making the Mixed Vegetable Pulao Recipe, we will first wash and soak rice in 2 cups of water for half an hour.

  • While the rice is soaking, steam the vegetables with a bit of salt and keep aside.

  • Make a powder of all the spices (cloves, cardamom and cinnamon) using a pestle and mortar. Keep aside.

  • After half an hour, into a large saucepan heat 2 tablespoons of ghee. Add the grated garlic and the powdered spices. Stir-fry for a few seconds.

  • Next add in the rice, salt , green chillies and the bay leaves along with the water it was soaked in. Turn the heat to high and allow the rice mixture to come to a boil.

  • Once it comes to a boil, turn the heat to low, cover the pan and simmer the rice until the rice absorbs all the water.

  • Once the water is absorbed, check if the pulao is cooked completely, to suit your taste. If it needs to be softer, you can add in a little more water and cook for a bit more time.

  • Turn off the heat and allow the pulao to rest for at least 10 minutes, this will help the rice to become a little stiff and remain as grains.

  • Finally stir in the steamed vegetables and chopped mint leaves and check the salt and adjust to suit your taste.

  • Transfer the Vegetable Pulao to a serving bowl and serve hot. 

  • Serve Mixed Vegetable Pulao along with Boondi RaitaTomato Onion Cucumber Raita or any other raita of your choice and a roasted papad for everyday meals.
