Last evening while out walking, suddenly it hit me.. I knew what I was going to make for lunch today [monday]. I quickly walked across towards More supermarket and bought what I needed. I had seen and tasted this dish at Spoonbill when Kamalika made it, so there was no confusion on the process. What was I making? Tawa Pulao ofcourse 😀

Here is what you need:-
1 cup Rice
1 tbsp – Oil
1/2 tsp – Cumin seeds
1/4 Onion chopped
1 Garlic pod
1 cup Mixed vegetables – Yellow capsicum, red capsicum, baby corn – all chopped into chunks
2 tsp – Pav bhaji masala
1/2tsp – curry powder
Salt- to taste
Mint leaves/coriander leaves
Water to cook the rice and boil baby corn

Other Options for vegetables: Peas, cauliflower, paneer, and just about anything you can think of.

The process:
1. Take a pressure cooker and cook the rice [1cup rice =3 cups water- 4 whistles]- turn off stove and set aside
I placed the baby corn in a plate along with the rice and cooked it.
2. In a pan, add oil, jeera, garlic and onion. Once sauted, add remaining vegetables and the masala powder & curry powder. Let it cook till the raw smell of masala goes away. Add required amount of salt and let it cook.
3. Add the cooked baby corn to this and saute for a minute. Now add the rice and spread it amidst the veg mix and cook for 2-3 minutes till it evenly mixes.

Voila.. Serve with curd, pappad or onion raita. I had it with boiled beetroot and curd.

PS: Am using pictures taken at Spoonbill because today I forgot to take pictures as hunger had taken over my brain.. 🙂
