Vegetable Pulao

Time 30 min
Basmati rice 1 cup
Green peas 1 tbsp
Carrot Small size 1 peeled and cut into cubes
Simla mirch/ Capsicum small size 1 cut into 1 inch square
Cauliflower 8-10 medium size pieces
Potato 1 medium size, peeled and cut into cubes
French beans cut into 1 inch size
Garam masala 1/4 tsp
Turmeric powder 1/4 tsp
Ginger Garlic paste 1 tsp
Bay leaves 2-3
Pepper 1tsp
Cloves 5-6
Green chilies 2 slit from the middle
Cashew nuts 1tbsp
Ghee 2 tbsp
Water 1.1/2 or 2 cup
Salt to taste

Wash the rice with water. Drain the water keep rice aside. Heat the thick bottom non stick sauce pan. Add ghee after it becomes hot add bay leaves, pepper, cloves, green chilies, ginger garlic paste, turmeric powder. Saute for few minutes. Add rice and saute for about 7-8 min till it becomes dry on medium flame. Add all cut vegetables, garam masala saute for 5-6 min. Then add hot water and salt to the rice, stir well. Cover with the lid keep the high flame for about 4-5 min. You will observe that most of the water is soaked by the rice and vegetables. Then remove the lid stirr rice upside down very carefully otherwise rice will get broken. Keep the low flame and cook it for about 10-12 min.

Instead of ginger garlic paste i use 5 in 1 masala. It tastes superb.
