I prepared Veg Pulao. The vegetables I use for the regular pulao are carrots, muter, flower, potatoes. I use Desi pulav masala which yields an Spicy flavor to the rice and a combination of ghee and oil for frying the vegetables which brings out their flavor awsome.
I just follow my mind and the available ingredients/spices while preparing a pulav. I try my best to be close to the required amount of spices used in a veg pulav while writing the recipe.
