Mixed Vegetable Pulao

I have already posted one version of mixed veg pulao where I have used the microwave to partially cook the veggies and then used an electric rice cooker to cook the pulao. You can check that recipe here. This recipe is an easy one pot recipe that is pretty simple to put together.

Mixed Veg Pulao

1. Taste the carrots before adding to biryani or pulao. If the carrots are sweet then it will change the taste of the whole dish. Your biryani/pulao can come out tasting sweetish if you use carrots that taste sweet. Better to taste the carrots before adding in.
2. You can add some garam masala powder too. 
3. You can skip the coconut milk and use 4 cups of water.
4. Amount of water added depends on the type of basmati rice you use. My rice requires 1:2 ratio (rice:water)

Until next time,
