Coconut Milk Pulav

which is a little different from the normal spicy pulav vareities. The colorful, sweet, nutritious, non-spicy and yummy dish is an ideal meal for kids. Why am I suddenly concerned about cooking for kids? Read through the post.


Basmathi rice - 1 cup (Soaked in water for 10 min)
Coconut Milk - 1 cup
Carrot - 1 sliced diagonally
Peas - half a cup
Cloves - 2
Green chillies slitted - 1 or 2
Cashews fried in ghee - 5 to 10
Butter - 2 tsp
Jeera - 2 tsp
Chopped coriander to garnish
Salt to taste


1. Heat the cooker vessel, add the butter and season with jeera and cloves.
2. Add the soaked rice and coconut milk. Add half a cup of water.
3. Add the veg, chillies, salt and cook till done. (10 to 15 min in medium flame) Don't use the weight.
4. Garnish with chopped coriander and fried cashews.

Serving Tip : Remove the cloves and add a dollop of ghee. Serve with potato wafers and curd.

I made this for dinner yesterday and only then did I notice this event. What a coincidence!!!
And now you get the drift as to why I was talking about kid's lunch.
Sending my recipe to the events.
