As you all would have made or tasted the simple veg pulao enriched with coconut milk, which makes the dish more softer and aromatic with the freshness of coconut milk. It’s very easy and a simple rice recipe, especially when you make it in Pressure cooker. As it makes the work simpler.

There are versions without adding onions and garlic. I have made with out garlic yet onions been added. But, you can ignore it if you don’t want to add them. It is easy lunch box menu or a busy day menu and goes with simple gravies or dal or even with raita or the least with plain curd.

I had my pulao platter with Gobi 65 and banana chips. How do you like to eat them??
