MBP - One Pot Wonders : Vegetable Pulav

When I started this blog, I wasn't sure if I would be able to participate in all of the blog events requiring authentic recipes. But one thing I was sure of that I will definitely be able to participate in Monthly Blog Patrol! coz thats basically what I keep doing.. looking at other blogs for great recipes to cook!

April's theme, One Pot Wonders is a great theme. Quite often, when I get home from work, I'm too tired (or lazy!) to make a full meal and cook up a quick pulav or khichadi.

Here is a pulav I tried recently from TongueTicklers. Thanks Sunshinemom for a great recipe!

I didn't use the turmeric. And instead of the pressure cooker, I just used a normal pot. I cooked everything on high without the lid till the water started boiling and then turned off the heat and let it cook covered for 10 minutes. Now I have a hot plate and not gas.. so the plate stays warm for 10 mins and in that time the rice is all cooked nicely each grain separate!

This is my entry for MBP - One Pot Wonders hosted by Pavani this month

I'm looking forward to the roundup to get some more ideas.

Mmm ... pulav - it always brings back such great memories of home, few things can beat my mum's pulav :)

Nice entry! I like how the grains are nicely separated.
