Mint Mushroom Pulav

Mint Mushroom Pulav

After making mint chutney,i had mushroom in my fridge so i made this.I made this in my rice cooking, it was easy to make.

Basmati Rice:1 cup
Water:2 cups
Mushroom:1 cup
Capsicum:1/2 cup(Cut into long pieces)
Mint Leaves:a handful
Coriander Leaves:a handful
Bay Leaves:2 leaves
Cinnamon: a small piece

Red Chilli Powder:2 tsp
Salt:as per taste
Coriander Leaves for Garnish.

Jeera(Cumin) and Mustard Seeds for tampering

-->I used frozen mushroom,fresh mushroom works well too.
-->Wash and Soak the Basmati Rice in water for 15mins.
-->Cut the mint and coriander leaves into small chunks.

1.In a Heavy bottom pan, add a tbsp of oil and add Jeera and Mustard Seeds for tampering.
2.When it starts to crackle add Bay Leaves,Cloves,Cinnamon and Cardamon.
3.Fry for few seconds and add Mushroom, Peas and Capsicum.
4.Add the leaves,salt and chill powder.
4.Fry till all the water from the mushroom absorbed.
5.Drain the water and add the rice and fry till the rice sticks to the bottom.
6.Switch off and add 2 cups of water.
7.Transfer to rice cooker and cook till the rice is done.

Note: If you dont have a rice cooker, you can cook the rice in the same pan.Add the water and close the lid and fry in between till the rice is done.

I find frying the rice with the veggies gives a nice flavor to the Pulav.

Garnish with coriander leaves and Enjoy with raita
