Tawa Pulao

I had seen this in Aipi's blog sometime back. When i received a mail from aipi telling me that her blog has been chosen for this month's Tried and tasted, i thought i will cook this. Not that i needed an event to try from her blog:-)I have tried many of her recipes, they turn out just perfect.
This rice dish was perfect for my theme of Blogger Marathon 2 too, so here comes the perfect street food recipe


Cooked basmati rice 2 cups

Mixed cut vegetable(i used carrot, beans,Cauliflower) 1 cup

Onion 1 diced

Tomato 1 diced

Bell pepper 1 diced

Ginger garlic paste 1 tsp

Pav bhaji masala 1 tsp

Garam masala 1 tsp

Cumin seeds 1 tsp

Turmeric powder 1/2 tsp

Asafoetida 1/4 tsp

Red chilli powder 1 tsp

Lemon juice 2 tsp

Salt to taste

Oil 2 tbsp

Cilantro to garnish


Heat the oil in a non stick pan. Add asafoetida and cumin seeds

When it splutters add the diced onions and the turmeric powder and saute it for 2 minutes

Now add the cut tomatoes and the ginger garlic paste. When a good aroma comes out add the cut vegetables and saute further for 5 -7 minutes.

Time to add the the chilli powder,Pav bhaji masala, Garam masala and saute it.

Put the cut bell pepper and saute again. Now add the cooked rice, Squeeze the lemon juice mix thoroughly and cook it in very low flame with a lid closed to infuse all flavours
