Vegetable pulao

Vegetable Pulao
Pulao is a simple rice dish cooked with spices & herbs. The spices & herbs will give a nice taste, aroma & lift to the dish. This rice can be paired with your choice of dry or gravy curry dish. I used normal rice in this dish, but replacing it with basmati rice will enhance the flavor more for the rice. You can use a pressure cooker or electric cooker in making it. I went with pressure cooker in making this recipe.
