Vegetable Pulao

By Harini
Vegetable pulao is a very famous one pot meal that needs no introduction :)Here is one of my versions of simple vegetable pulao. I like to add as much vegetables as rice in my pulao to enhance the nutrition.In this recipe I cooked rice separately and added to the vegetables later.This recipe is very simple to make with minimum spices yet it surely fits in any grand meals.Please try and let me know your comments.
