I love the smell of Pulav.. Mom makes it sooo well and so does my chinna paati, chithi papa and uncle siyamee...Yumm!

This is a very simple recipe. Somehow, I feel I have never perfected it..
2 cup Mixed veggies ( peas, beans, carrots cut long at an angle like 'french cut')
1 small onion cut long
2 cup basamti rice
3 cups water
1 big elachi, 1/4 inch star anise, 4 peppercorns, 1 inch cinnamon, 2 cloves, 1 bay leaf
1 sp ghee, 1 sp oil
1/2 sp jeera
1 green chilli, slit long
2 tsp sour curd/yogurt
Salt to taste

If the rice is starchy, soak rice for 1/2 hr before cooking. Drain out excess water. Add oil and ghee in a kadai. Add jeera and all the spices. Add the onions, green chilli, veggies, salt. Add rice and roast well. Boil water separately. Add water, yogurt. Once it comes to a boil, close and cook. (you can also transfer it to a rice cooker). Garnish with chopped coriander leaves and serve with raita, chips and a nice North Indian gravy.
