Mushroom Pulao

I haven't been posting any of my recipes for the past 3 months...Well, I was busy during November...went to India for a holiday in December..I've come back to the UK in January but wasn't interested to try anything new in my kitchen....yesterday after so many weeks I tried to make pulao....Suprisingly it turned out so easy and tasty I couldn't resist myself from posting this...Among the veggies my most favourite ingredients for rice items are mushrooms, capsicum and green peas....I had few mushrooms in my pantry and hence I made mushroom pulao for our lunch..Here goes the recipe...


Basmati Rice - 3 cups (Wash and soak)
Mushrooms - 250gm (Cut into halves and boil in hot water with salt n turmeric for 10min. Set aside)
Red Onions - 2 (sliced lengthwise)
Green chillies - 4 (cut into pieces)
Coconut milk - 150ml
Egg - 1 (Optional)
Salt - to taste
Ginger garlic paste - 2tsp
Garam Masala powder - 2tsp
Oil - 1 tbsp


1. Drain the rice and add 6 cups of water and cook till 3/4th done in the cooker/rice cooker.
2. In a large frying pan heat the oil. Saute the onions and green chillies till onions turn soft.
3. Add ginger garlic paste and fry for about 3min.
4. Add salt and garam masala powder and mix well.
5. Add the boiled and drained mushrooms and cook for 3-4min.
6. Now break the egg(if you are using) into the pan and stir well till the egg gets cooked.
7. Now add the coconut milk and bring to boil.
8. Once the mixture is cooked well, add the 3/4th cooked rice to the pan and mix well.
9. Close the pan and cook on medium for 10min or till the rice is done.

Serve hot .Coconut milk adds a nice flavour to the rice. Tastes well with korma/gravy curries or just raitha.
