Veg Pulao is a Northindian recepie which is usually prepared by boiling or pressure cooking rice along with veggies and spices.

Here in this recepie I have followed a quick and easy method to prepare pulao. Any veggies of your choice can be used for this recepie , for example ; Peas, carrots, cauliflower, beans, potato, paneer cubes,corn kernels ,soya chunks etc.

This pulao is a super combination to go with any vegetable side dish or salad. The rich flavour of pure ghee / clarified butter and whole spices gives special aroma and taste to the recepie.
