Vegetable fried rice(Pulao)

This the most common dish that i make, both as lunch, as well as dinner, as its so healthy, easy and fast to make too...

Kids like to eat it too, and myself also satisfied that, aah finally i could make vegetables into their diet... Mostly my cooking is formatted that it should be kid friendly, as i have two toddlers at home to deal with, with a lot differtent taste buds..hehe

Eat it with raita, or as it is...


2 cups Basmati Rice
1 Onions large sliced
Green Chillies(as par taste)
2 tbsp ghee,
2 Carrots,cut lenghtwise,abt a inchlong
1 Potato, cut lenghtwise,abt a inchlong
1/2 cup Peas
10 15 beans, cut in 1 inch size,
1 cup Cauliflower,cut into florets
2 tomatoes, puried
1/2 tsp Garam Masala
Salt To Taste

5 6 cashew broken
2 tsp cumin seeds
2 bay leaves
Cinnamon sticks - 1 inch
2 3 Cloves

4 cups water


Soak rice for atleast about 15 minutes, then wash and keep aside
Pre-cook rice with a pinch of salt. Allow the rice to cool.

Heat the ghee in a saucepan and add bayleaves, cumin, cloves ,cinnamon and cashews; fry.
Add the onions and cook until brown. Add the green chillies. Stir for few minutes.
Add all the vegetables and mix well.
Cook until the masala separates from oil and vegetables (subzi) gets tender. Add tomato puree , cook for some time and then add garam masala.
Add salt and stir well.
Mix the vegetable mix with the rice.
Serve the vegetable pulao hot, with raita.

While cooking rice, add few drops of lemon,so that grains of rice won't stick together.
