Cooking Vegetable Pulao in Pressure Cooker is the easiest recipe to get done, especially in the mornings packing for kids lunch box. I have way too many recipes for making a pulao. I still come up with different ones, depending on the mood and combinations I end up doing.
The vegetable Pulao I am going to share today is a one I recently cooked for Kids lunch box. While sometime back I used to pack different dish for each one, off late I have been strict in saying that all get to carry the same lunch. Towards that, I lean to dishes that are one pot meals and cooked in Pressure cookers.
For the Thalis this month, I decided to make and showcase everyday dishes that get cooked. Off late all of us have moved to a stage where two dishes max seems to be very filling. However I remember a couple of years back, each meal used to have specific component included catering to the protein, fibre etc. Though Amma never really gave a thought to these specific nutritional aspects, her dishes used to end up that way.
Having that in mind, I prepared a Lentil sundal, vegetable dry sautes, Sambar, Rice and Curd Rice. So apart from this, there will be a variety rice that is also cooked. So for that, I made this quick vegetable pulao.
The rice turned out very delicious and more than the rest on the plate, this was liked by all.
