MUSHROOM PULAO RECIPE | EASY LUNCH BOX RECIPES


Mushroom pulao ,i tried last week following the recipe which i learnt from my relative who made a vegetable pulao on my request. After our marriage we went to her house in Chennai for lunch and she made a delicious food and vegetable pulao with Chole was the main highlight. So when she came here last month, i remembered about that vegetable pulao and asked her to make that  for me. Later , i tried the same recipe using mushrooms.

  • Soak the basmathi rice in 1 and 1/2 cups of water for 5 minutes.

  • Add salt and few drops of lemon juice ( lemon juice is added to retain the white color of the rice and it wont give any sour taste to the rice) .Cook the rice till 2 –3 whistles.
  • Thinly slice the mushrooms and onions after washing it nicely.

  • In a pan add little butter and add in the onions. Add little salt and saute them till they turn pink. Add the thinly sliced mushrooms. Mushrooms tend to cook fast and so saute for a while and mushroom oozes out water too.
