BROKEN WHEAT VEGETABLE PULAO


Broken wheat --- 1 cup(laavu godhumarava)
Onion ---- 1 small sliced
Green chilies ---- 2 cut in to small pieces
Carrot and beans --- 1/2 cup cut in to small pieces
Green peas --- 1 tab sp
Ginger --- 1 tea sp chopped
Garlic ---- 1 tea sp chopped
Oil --- 1 tab sp (you can use ghee also)(I used oilive oil)
Cloves --- 2no.
Cinamon --- 1 inch piece broken
Cardamom --- 2 no.
Cumin seeds --- 1/2 tea sp
Salt to taste

METHOD:-----
1. Heat oil on a pressure cooker add cloves,cinamon, cardamom and cumin seeds and let them popup then, add onion slices and green chili pieces and fry till onion become soft.
2. Then add vegetable pieces and green peas stir for 2 min. then add chopped ginger and garlic and stir for 5 min.
3. Now add broken weat and salt to taste mix well and stir for a min.
4. Now add 3 cups of water mix well and cover with lid and cook till 2 whistles.
Remove from heat and let it cool down, then open mix well and serve.
Serve with onion or cucumber raita
You can cook this in open pan also but it will take more time.
You can add broken cashew nuts and raisins when you add onion at that time this will give more rich taste.
Boondhi raita also a good combo for this
enjoy your meal.
