Vegetable Pilaf is a rice dish which I have cooked in an easy way in rice cooker. This Pilaf or pulao is a one-pot dish which you can simply serve with some raita or dal of your choice. I always look for easy dishes to make during week days or if I have sudden guests at home. Weekdays especially morning time is always hectic as I have a kid who I have to get ready for school. I even have to finish preparing lunch by 8 A.M as I pack lunch for my husband which he can enjoy in his office lunch break. I do enjoy some free time afterwards and that’s when I plan my posts, check my mails etc.

I use basmati rice to make vegetable pulav and I prefer my rice to be non-sticky. Each grain should be cooked but it should not be sticky. You can even add vegetables of your choice in this dish. I enjoyed this pilaf with some rajma masala.
