BM #119 Week 2 Day 3 - 

Tawa Pulao is one of the most famous fried rice varieties from the streets of Mumbai. I am not sure if this is served in any restaurant but street food right now sounds too good, right?

I felt it was a breeze to prepare and is a perfect dish to make with leftover rice.

Ingredients - 

Basmati Rice 2 cups
Salt, Turmeric, Red Chili Powder as needed
Pav Bhaji Masala 1 Tbsp
Onions, finely chopped 1/2 cup
Ginger-garlic-green chili paste 2 tsp
Tomatoes, pureed 1/2 cup
Carrot, Beans, Peas, Yellow Capsicum finely chopped 1 cup
Seasoning (Oil 1 tsp, Butter 1 Tbsp, Cumin seeds 1/2 tsp)
Chopped Cilantro for garnish and lemon juice to taste

Method Of Preparation -

Soak Basmati rice for 10-15 minutes. Cook it so each grain is separate. Set aside.

In a heated pan, add oil and butter. After the butter melts, add the cumin seeds.

After the cumin seeds pop, add the onions, ginger-garlic-green chili paste. Saute until the onions golden brown.

Add in the finely chopped vegetables and the tomato puree, salt, turmeric, red chili powder, pav bhaji masala and let the vegetables cook.

After the mixture releases the oil, reduce the heat and gently transfer the cooked basmati rice.

Gently mix so that the rice is well coated with the mixed vegetables and spices.

Remove from heat, garnish with cilantro and squeeze lemon juice as needed.

Serve it warm with any raita for a delicious meal. 


Preparation Time 30 minutes
