Mushroom,corn and pea Pulao – made in a Pressure cooker

Mushroom is a very healthy and nutritious vegetable but some how I didn’t like the texture and taste of it may be beacause during my childhood we don’t consume mushroom at my mothers place .But my children loves mushroom and I only eat mushoorms in Pizzas.Some how I started liking the taste of it and tried using it in few recipes some times.Few days back I made Kadhai Mushroom which every one loves.I always prefer to make Home made pizza as I dont like the blend taste of restaurent pizzas and I always add mushrooms in it. A delicious and easy – Pizza puffs is my daughters favorite snack and I makes it often as an easy and quick fix snack.

Rice is made often at my home,some times it is Biryani Pulao, Chutney pulao, Fruity Pulao Nizami Sesame Pulao, Lemon Rice,a tangy Tomato Mint Rice and many more rice preparations. As mushroom is a very healthy and nutrition packed vegetable so I tried this mushroom matar pulao for a change and we all loved it so much. I made this mushroom pea pulao in the pressure cooker for a quick version but it can also be done in a pan .
