Tawa Pulao

A plate full of spicy Tawa Pulao along with some mango pickle and fried papad wow! Another famous street food from Bombay.  In no time the Tawa Pulao has gained immense popularity in all the age groups, its filling yummy and contains lots of veggies. We can make a lot of innovations with it by adding eggs and chicken. This time I stuck to the original Tawa Pulao with veggies.

Cooked Basmati rice - 1 cup
Mixed vegetables - 1/2 cup (I used carrots, french beans & green peas)
onion - 1 medium sized cubed
tomato - 1 chopped
asafoetida - a pinch
ginger garlic paste - 1 tsp
cashews - handful
black cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp (shahajeera)
red chilli powder - 2 tsp
turmeric - 1/1 tsp
garam masala powder - 1 tsp
dhaniya jeera powder - 1 tsp
red food color - 1/4 tsp (optional)
pav bhaji masala - 2 tsp
fresh chopped coriander - handful
salt - to taste
oil/butter - tempering

Heat oil in a skillet fry the cashews until light brown and keep aside now add shah jeera along with asafoetida. Add onions once they start changing the color add the ginger garlic paste. Throw the veggies and cook for a minute add  red chilli powder, turmeric, garam masala and dhaniya jeera powder cook for a minute now add the tomatoes along with cashews,pav bhaji masala and salt mix and sprinkle very little water you can add the red food color mix and add the cooked rice nicely mix the rice cover and cook the rice on low flame for 2 to 3 min garnish with fresh coriander and serve with raita or any side gravy.
