Hello everyone! How have you all been. My today’s recipe is very simple and easy to make plus everyone loves it. Pulao is eaten a lot and lovingly in my home and I am sure everyone enjoys it. There are many variations all the mommies come up with and I am no exception. I made this pulao using tomato soup powder and well end result was it was finished off with happy satisfied feeling in tummy.
So lets begin our pulao. Again the measurements I give here are just for indication and you can adjust it your way.
1cup rice washed and soaked
½ cup tomato soup ( I use the knorr ready soup)
½ cup mix vegetables of your choice ( I have used here peas, cauliflower, carrots and potatoes)
1 onion sliced
1 dalchini/cinnamon stick cut in small pieces
1 cardamom broken
Salt to taste
1tsp garam masala powder
2tsp red chilli powder
2 tbsp ghee
1tsp jeera/cumin seeds
Water as required
Take a pan, add 1tbsp ghee. Let it heat then add jeera. Once it splutters add onions and sauté till they turn bit pink. Add dalchini, cloves and cardamom and stir them. Add mix vegetables, stir them for a min and add salt. Be careful with salt as it would be used later also. Put little water and cook them. Add other masalas and cook for a min more and it should be dry, not watery. Keep it aside.
In another pan heat the remaining ghee and add rice. Stir the rice nicely and softly for a minute. Add the tomato soup and if needed some water and add salt. Don’t put too much water or your rice would get too soggy. Cook the rice for few minutes. Once rice is done take it off the gas. Add your cooked vegetables to rice and stir it slowly till rice and vegetables are mixed. Your tomato soup pulao is ready.
Serve it hot with any raita. I have used boondi raita here.
P. S. Tomato soup should not be cooked if its in powder form. just mix water and add this soupy water to rice to cook.
