Vegetable Pulao Recipe | How to make Veg Pulao | Easy Pulao Recipes

vegetable pulao

Vegetable Pulao is one of my favorite pulao next to the peas pulao. It is loaded with veggies and easy to make and tastes great. If i have more than 4 or 5 vegetables, then my choice of pulao would be definitely veg pulao only. Also if any of our guests come, my choice is this only. If you have frozen mixed veggies, then your work would much more easier. But I like to do with fresh veggies. 

You can try different pulao recipes from here and some I have given below.
