MIXED VEGETABLE PULAV WITH PAV BHAJI FLAVOR

Photobucket
A aromatic vegetable pulav recipe from Chakh... le....re. This pulav tastes very different and we just love the aroma, thank you so much for the recipe.. Since 1 month I am with my parents because of my moms health . Now she is feeling much better.Both my mom and dad are food lovers. They like different varieties and flavors in their meal,Especially this rice varieties like mixed rice, biryanis and pulavs. Today I wanted to make some pulav and raita for my mom and dad because of V.day and long back when I make this pav bhaji pulav for my hubby dear he likes it very much so I tried it once again and it came out so very well and my mom and dad enjoyed it very much. Ha haa my mom enjoyed it a little bit more I think there is some left over about a small bowl so amma kept it in the fridge and had it for dinner also. One thing about my parents both of them are great food lovers and they enjoy the food what ever I make for them if it is a North Indian or a South Indian dish, ofcourse amma likes pasta also but with some Indian touch... And coming to the recipe I have made little changes in the recipe, she used Asafotieda in the original recipe I didn't used it if you like the flavor then add it with mustard and cumin seeds.And I used fresh vegetables you can use frozen also thats it I think.... Here I go with the recipe...........
