Easy Breezy Pulao

One day, my sister R prepared this pulao for dinner. She did this in a jiffy without much work like cutting and frying the veggies and soaking the rice etc. She even didn’t use so many ingredients, but the pulao tasted so great and I thought I would share this delicious, easy recipe with all of you!

Here is the recipe in her words:

  • 1 cup Basmati Rice
  • ½ cup Mixed Vegetables (Frozen variety)
  • ¼ tsp Turmeric
  • 1 tsp Garam Masala
  • ½ tsp Ghee or Butter
  • ½ tsp Oil
  • 1 ½ cups of Water to cook
  • Salt as required


Wash the rice well and place it in any rice cooker (electric or pressure) along with the mixed vegetables + turmeric + ½ tsp garam masala + salt + water. If desired, some red chili powder can be added for more spiciness.

When the rice is done (cooked), add the remaining ½ tsp garam masala along with the ghee or butter and mix well. That’s it! The Easy Breezy Pulao is ready.

Garnish the pulao with roasted cashews and mint or cilantro, if desired. Enjoy the steaming hot rice with raita or just plain yogurt.

Isn’t this pulao sounds so easy and scrumptious?
