Vegetable pulao or veg pulao is an easy recipe and i have posted few varieties of pulao here. This jaipuri veg pulao i have tried once by seeing the Youtube Video of a Ruchi Bharani. I personally love her videos and the way she explains itself motivates me to make the dish. This Veg pulao is quite rich in taste and involves items like cream, cashew and butter but all in very small quantity only. Especially on weekends and the day you have guest, this veg pulao is a must one to try .

  1. Since beans and took cauliflower took long time to get cooked i didn’t add. If you want you can par boil it separately and add it to the rice.
  2. Adding of fresh cream gives richness and enhances the taste of the pulao. So don’t skip it.
  3. Ensure the basmati rice is cooked grainy with each grains separate.
