Vegetable Pulao with left over Paneer Mutter gravy

Last Tuesday was quiet a tiring day at office so thought of making a one dish meal. Peeped in the fridge saw the  paneer and mutter bhaji it was semi gravy. There were some carrots, french beans so came up with this simple but delicious rice. It went very well with papad and mango pickle. It would have been tasted even better if I would have made the extra efforts to make the raita, but trust me folks I just wanted to sleeeeeeep after that.

We can make good use of left over food by making a completely different dish. This gives us variety as well as the food is not wasted.

cooked rice - 1 cup
ginger garlic paste - 1 tsp
onion diced - 1 medium size 
mixed vegetable - 1/4 cup (I used carrots and french beans)
leftover paneer mutter semi gravy was about 1/4 cup
cinnamon - 1 stick
black cardamom - 1
cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
salt to taste
black pepper powder - 1/2 tsp
oil for tadka.
Heat oil in a cooking vessel, add cumin seeds, cinnamon, black cardamom as they splutter add the diced onions and ginger garlic paste keep the flame on medium add a bit of salt and fry the onions until  light brown. Add the mixed vegetables along with the leftover and fry for a minute or two so that the gravy dries up. Be careful to add salt as the veggie already has it before. Add the cooked rice along with pepper powder and salt Mix all the ingredients and cook for 5 min on low flame. Serve it hot along with papad and pickle.
