Hema's recipe: Vegetable pulao(with coconut milk)

I always prepare veg pulao or biryani. But this time I wanted to try it out with coconut milk.

It came out really well. The coconut milk and the whole spices gives a nice flavour and tastes really nice.


1) Rice - 1 cup(preferably basmati)
2) Jeera - 1/2 tbsp
3) Cloves - 3 nos.
4) Cinnamon - 1 inch
5) Cardamom - 1 pod
6) star anise - 1
7) Bay leaves - 2
8) Green chilli - 3
9) Coconut milk - 1 cup
10) Assorted veggies - 2 cups(beans, peas, carrot)
11) Water - 1 cup
12) Ghee - 2 tbsp
13) Coriander leaves - a few
14) Salt to taste


1)Soak rice in water for 1/2 an hour.
2)Heat ghee in a pan. Add cloves, cinnamom, cardamom, jeera, star anise and bay leaves.
3)you will get a nice aroma. Now add green chillies and roast till white spots appear.
4)Add the veggies and roast till they turn crisp.
5)Now drain the water and add rice. Mix them well.
6)Add 1 cup coconut milk & 1 cup water and pressure cook them for 2 whistles.
7)Garnish with coriander leaves.
8)Serve it with any raita or any gravy of your choice.
9)I served it with aloo gobi.


1)If possible you can add 2 cups coconut milk instead of that 1 cup water.
2)Adjust green chillies according to your spice.
