Here is a very simple recipe for preparing a special pulav! If you hear the word pulav, you will think of the ingredients which you need for it and a complicated method of doing it.. My mother never  uses garam masala for preparing pulav. She uses her own masala powder . She cooks rice  and vegetables separately  and mixes in the seasoning. Then what, pulav is ready! Don't worry about my mother's secret pulav powder, you can prepare pulav with your own sambar/ saaru powder also. Here is the recipe for you...


Preparation time: 30 - 35 minutes
Servings: 2

Ingredients:
Rice - 1 1/2 cup
Water - 3 cups
Beans 6-7
Carrot - 1
Green peas (optional) - few
Cloves 3-4
Cinnamon - 1" piece
Cumin seeds - 1/2 spoon
Fennel seeds - 1/4spoon
Mustard seeds - 1/4 spoon
Ginger garlic paste - 1 spoon
Onion - 1 medium sliced thinly
Sambar / rasam powder - 1 1/2 spoon as per your taste
Green chilli -1
Sugar - 1/4 spoon
Salt to taste
Lime juice - 1 spoon
Oil - 3 tbsp
Ghee - 1 1/2 spoon


Method :
Wash the rice thoroughly and cook with 1:2 cups of water.                                                            
Mix  long cut carrot, beans and green peas with little salt in a pressure cooker for one whistle. Let it cool and drain all the water.
Heat oil in a pan and add cinnamon pieces, cloves, mustard seeds and fry for a while. Add cumin seeds, fennel seeds, sliced green chilli, ginger garlic paste and saute for a minute. 
Now add thinly sliced onion and fry for 3-4 minutes. 
Add sambar/rasam powder and cooked vegetables into the pan and cook for 2 minutes. 
Then add cooked rice, salt , lime juice and sugar and mix well. 
Finally add ghee and cover the pan, simmer for 4 minutes. Now your pulav is ready!!  It's tastier if you eat hot with raitha.
