Easy 10 minutes Vegetable Pulao/ Vegetable Tehri

Vegetable Pulao/ vegetable tehri

Vegetable Pulao is one of the quick and one pot recipe. This is also known as Tehri in North India. Its prepared with rice and vegetables along with other regular spices. Normally when I want to make something quick dal khichdi or vegetable pulao seems to be the best option. Read Mix Vegetable fried rice from left over rice. You can stir fry the vegetables and few regular spices and mix the rice. your fried ricce is ready within 15 – 20 minutes. My focus is finding out ways to save cooking time without compromising on taste and nutrition fact. There is another way to make this. Pressure cook them together. This is also easy and quick recipe.

The best combination of vegetables that goes well with this pulao are potatoes, cauliflower, bell peppers, green peas, carrots, green beans. Here I have added green peas, carrots, potatoes, beans. you can add whatever vegetable available including broccoli, paneer or tofu. When I cook this for my diabetic dad I add bottle gourd instead of potatoes. There is no thumb rule that any vegetable can not be added to such versatile receipe.

This is an one pot dish and prepared in pressure cooker. So it takes only 2 whistles and 10 minutes for the whole process. This is simple rice dish made with very few regular spices.
