 Wash & soak the rice for about 20-30 minutes. Wash and cut the vegetables, extract the coconut milk or used canned coconut milk.

In a pressure cooker heat oil & ghee, add cinnamon sticks, cloves, bay leaves, fennel seeds and sauté for 20 secs.Add onions, green chillies and sauté until golden brown. Now add the ginger & garlic paste and sauté until the raw smell goes off. Add the vegetables and sauté for about 3 mins.

Add the coconut milk, salt, mint leaves and let it come to boil. Now add the soaked basmathi rice, when it starts to bubble close the lid and cook for one whistle and switch off the stove.

Finally garnish with cilantro and few more mint leaves and mix them gently to the rice.
Yummy super simple vegetable pulav is ready, it can be served with raitha or kurma.

Alternatively you can just close the lid and cook for about 10 to 12 mins without the whistle.
You can use one can of coconut milk instead of grinding the coconut, if you don’t have time for the same.
If you want the rice to be spicy you can more green chillies and adjust it according to your needs.
