VEGETABLE KORMA PULAO


This vegetable korma pulao turned awesome!

The preparation was the same as making a

korma,the only difference was the addition of

rice,and the cashew paste. You could use

basmati or any quality pulao rice.

As,I was running out of biriyani masala,I added

a teaspoon of biriyani essence ( which is used

for mutton biriyani). Recently I came across

this essence, and I don’t follow the instructions

in the bottle as I feel the smell is strong , so only

a teaspoon .Only a teaspoon gives out a nice

aroma !

Now to the recipe

INGREDIENTS

250 gm basmati rice

1/2 cup cauliflower florets

1 carrot

1 potato

1 tomato

Beans/ peas ( I used soaked green channa)

Few whole garam masala ( saunf,cinnamon,cloves,black cardamon,sea moss,star anise )

For the paste

1/2 coconut

10 cashewnuts

1 tsp saunf

2-3 green chillies

2-3 tblsp ghee / oil

Heat ghee in a wide pan, and add whole spices,

onions,salt, and green chillies .

Once, the onion turns lightly brown,add the

tomato,turmeric and sauté till tomato is soft.

rice and sauté for another five minutes.

Next add the vegetables with the little stock the

rest of the spices.Add water 1 inch above the
