Chutney pulao

Hello friends! Looking at title again you would wonder what is this? Well, this is again a simple yet tasty dish and is ready in minutes.. Want to know how I made it.. Read on...


  • 1 1/2 cup rice
  • 1/2 cup coriander/mint chutney
  • 1/4 cup peas
  • 1 green capsicum
  • 1 potato 
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 onion
  • 2-3 cloves
  • 1/2 inch cinnamon stick
  • 2tbsp oil/ghee
  • 1/4 tsp cumin seeds
  • salt to taste
  • water as required

Wash and soak rice for 15-20mins.Dice the vegetables and keep aside. In a big pan, heat oil or ghee. Add chopped onions first and saute it for a min. Add jeera and let it splutter. After a minute, add cinnamon stick and cloves.Saute till you get nice aroma but watch the onions. Add chopped  vegetables and stir it.Next add green chutney and mix well. Add rice and salt accordingly as chutney would have salt too. Finally add water as required for rice and vegetables to cook. Cover and keep for some till rice is cooked.  Switch off the gas.
Your chutney pulao is ready. Serve it hot with any raita or decorations. 

Notes:  I added mostly the above vegetables and did not add any other spices other than mentioned above. I had some extra chutney so used that to make pulao and the taste was great. Adjust spice level and vegetables as per your liking. I topped it with slice cheese to make it even more tasty.  You can also use left over plain rice and mix it with bit of chutney and veggies.

Hope you like the dish..
