Janmastmi Recipe Vegetable Pulao


3 cups of rice, boiled 

A bunch of coriander leaves. 

3-4 green chillies. 

2 tsp of coconut, shredded 

A few sticks of cinammon, a few
cardommom seeds, a few cloves. 

1 1/2 tsp red chilli powder. 

salt to taste. 

1 inch piece ginger. 

Ghee or melted butter for frying. 

1 cup of cauliflower flowerets. 

Some mixed frozen vegetables like beans,
carrots and green peas. 

3 tsbp ghee(clarified butter)


Grind together coconut, ginger and coriander in the blender, to make a smooth paste. Keep aside. Warm ghee/melted butter. Add the cloves, cinnamon and cardommom.

 Add the red chilli powder and fry for 30-45 seconds. Now add all the vegetables,including the cauliflower and sprinkle some water on it. Keep covered and cook on a low flame till the vegetables are cooked. 

This might take approximately 15-20 minutes. Keep sprinkling water periodically to speeden up the process, but do not add excess water as it will ruin the pulao. 

When the vegetables are done, transfer the vegeables to a big mixing dish, add all the boiled rice, salt to taste and the blended masala. Mix thoroughly and then heat it either in a microwave or on low heat on the cooking range.It is heated again to let the salt spread across the dish. Serve with Raita.
