My dear friend A from Med School is so much in to cooking these days, i am so proud of her. Here is yet another recipe I dedicate to her and her kid. Vegetable pulao goes well with cauliflower manchurian and spicy chicken curries.

A few things before we start:

  • Coconut milk give a rich flavour to the rice. If you want you can alter the ratio of water to coconut milk for a lighter taste and to reduce calories.
  • You can add any vegetales at all. When adding capsicum and celery, make sure not to over cook them so much that they go mushy.

Vegetable Pulao

Serves 4


1 - Basmati rice - 2cups
2 - Oil - 1 tbsp
3- Whole black peppercones - 1 tsp
    Onion - 1/2, sliced
    Carrot - 1, cut in small strips
    Green peas - 1/2 cup
    Sweet corn - 1/2 cup
4- Salt - 1 1/2 tsp
5- Coconut milk - 400ml
    Water - 1 1/4 cup
6- fresh coriander leaves for garnish (optional)

  • Rinse rice in several changes of water, until the water that runs off is clear. Let drain while you prepare the rest of the pulao.
  • Over high heat, warm the oil in a wide pan with a lid. Add peppercones, and let them pop. 
  • Lower the heat to medium and add the onions. Cook for about 2 minutes, then add the carrots, green peas and sweet corn. Cook for another 4-5 minutes, until all the vegetables are tender. Sprinkle with ½ teaspoon salt.
  • Now add the rice and stir well. Pour in the coconut milk, the water, and the remaining teaspoon of salt. Return the heat to high, bring to a boil, give it one more stir, then cover and leave to cook till all the water is absorbed.
  • Sprinkle with coriander leaves if using and serve.

A doctor in my day job and a food writer and food photographer by night. I came in to cooking because of the people around me, be it the women in family who are amazing cooks or the men who luv to eat. My son is my best critic. :) Started cooking while I was at school, my first attempt being a sweetie, no surprise there for people who know me. I got interested in cooking more after marriage, as most girls do. My experiments with food blossomed after coming to the UK, where the grocery stores opened up a variety of foodie opportunities for my hungry tum.
