Vegetables Dum Biryan Pulao

As I have said in one of my previous posts that I am fond of rice dishes. I like to eat rice and cook it as well in its different variants. Hence, I am here again with one variant of rice dish. It is somewhat similar to Mixed Veg Pulao as it is also a Pulao recipe blended with different vegetables but it is slight different in flavor because it is cooked in a bit larger quantity of spices and vegetables used are marinated in yogurt. So it is different in way of its cooking and flavor.

Pulao is cooked in Steam (Dum) with marinated vegetables and its flavor & way of cooking is similar to Biryani( texture of Biryani is somewhat different) that’s why I call it Vegetables Dum Biryan Pulao.

Vegetables Dum Biryan Pulao is very flavorsome because of spices used and Flavor of Pulao mingled with different vegetables tastes delicious. And aroma of Pulao is exotic out of the world. It is so tempting; you can’t deter yourself eating it. Ohh… I think it’s enough of talking about its flavor, I can’t wait telling you about its recipe and after cooking you won’t be able to avoid eating it. Let’s get on to recipe:
