BM# 63: Journey through the Cuisines  Week 2: Rajasthani Cuisine  Day 10: J for Jaipuri Pulao
Today I have a easy to make, colorful and delicious rice dish. Being a south Indian, I am attracted to rice dishes like a magnet and so J is for Jaipuri Pulao it is. This is a great dish to make on a busy weeknight or to serve at a fancy party.
Jaipuri Vegetable Pulao Recipe is from this You Tube video by Ruchi Bharani. Cooked basmati is tossed with colorful veggies and a freshly ground spice paste. So once you have the spice paste ready, the recipe comes together in no time.
Jaipuri Vegetable Pulao Original recipe has grated paneer, but I added some cooked kidney beans instead to make it more wholesome and complete meal. But you can add chickpeas or tofu. Jaipuri Vegetable Pulao
