  • After the onions are done add the remaining vegetables ,the above ground spices and salt ,cover the sauce pan and cook for 10mins.
  • Drain and add the soaked rice and mix till the rice and vegetables blend well.
  • Transfer the whole to a electric cooker and add water for the rice and vegetables.
  • Garnish with cilantro and serve with Raita or any north indian gravy.



  • Any combination of vegetables and spices can be tried. Adding cashews and raisins will make the pulao rich and definitely tasty ;-).
  • If using a pressure cooker, the whole procedure can be done in the cooker pan and water can be added once the rice and vegetables mix well.
  • Instead of oil, you can use equal measures of ghee and oil. This gives a mild, comforting taste. Ghee can be added to the cooker along with the water.
