Veg Pulao --- Microwave

Last month i was very busy with the kids exams and other things,didn't find time to write her.Was writing in my other blog but didn't right here.It is not that i neglected or i lost interest but i felt i should take a break.Now back from my break in this new year.The recipe i am writing today is from Nita Metha's Microwave cooking.I have posted Veg pulao recipe here and here before but this is different compared to both because of the different ingredients i used.As such the previous both are also different.Here goes the recipe of Nita Mehta...


Basmati rice 1 cup
Ginger garlic paste 1 1/2 tsp
Cauliflower florets 1/2 cup
Potato 2 cut into 1/2" pieces
Carrots 2 cut into pieces
Green peas 1 cup
Panner cubes 10
Turmeric powder 1/4tsp
Red chilly powder 1/2tsp

Pepper 10
Fennel seeds 2 tsp
Green cardamoms 3-4
Black cardamoms 3-4

Soak rice in 2 cups of water for 30 minutes. Tie the ingredients of the spice bag in a piece of muslin cloth.

In a broad micro proof dish, put oil, ginger and garlic paste, cauliflower, panner, potato, carrots and peas. Microwave for 3 minutes.

Add the soaked rice. Add haldi, red chilly powder and salt. Add the spice bag. Microwave covered for 6 minutes.

Add mint leaves and lemon juice. Stir gently with a fork. Cover and microwave for 7 minutes. Wait for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork. Remove spice bad. Serve hot.
