To make Vegetable Pulao, first cook the brown basmati rice. Make sure the grains are long and separated from each other. Allow it to cool in the refrigerator or at room temperature.

Take oil in a deep pan. Add chopped onion and ginger garlic paste. Stir well. When the onion start’s changing colour add diced tomatoes. When the tomatoes are cooked, add tomato ketchup or puree. Stir well. Add red chili powder and turmeric powder. Add Pav Bhaji masala. Stir well for two minutes. Now add all the vegetables (red capsicum, spring onion, green chilies and carrot). Add salt to taste. When the spices are well blended with the vegetables, add half a cup of water. When the water starts to boil, add the cooked and cooled brown rice. Mix well so that the spices coat the rice evenly. Close the lid for a minute. Serve hot along with raita.


You can add vegetables of your choice.


You can use left over rice for this pulao too.
