Mum's Bachelor Pulao

One quick dish which can satiate your hunger during any day is Pulao. I specially like this one made by Mommy and rejoice the taste when she prepares it. This Pulao is easy and quick to dish out. Specially recommended for Bachelor cooking where one has minimum resources and less time to dish out a quick meal. I also learnt while preparing this dish that adding one spoonful of ghee towards the end adds special aroma to the Pulao. One can use the regular MTR Pulao masala one gets at Food World et al. Try it out and enjoy!!

Serves: 2-3 Individuals

Rice – 1 Cup
Chopped Vegetables – 2-3 Cups (Cauliflower, Onions, French Beans)
Ghee – 3-5 teaspoon
MTR Pulao Masala – 2 teaspoon
Pepper powder – ½ teaspoon
Hot water – 2 Cup
Salt – As per taste

1.Wash the rice and keep aside.
2.Add 3 t ghee in a pot and saute the vegetables. Once the veggies get a coat of fat
all over, add hot water and leave to parboil.
3.After the vegetables are parboiled and the water evaporates, add the rice
4.Add rest of the ingredients and once mixed well, add 2 t ghee and leave on low flame for 2-3 minutes. Serve hot with pickle or Raita.
