As I had missed all the events for the past two months in the blogosphere I wanted to participate as many event possible.EC'S Mixed Rice Varieties Event is my first one.

Plain pulao is done by many of us according to our tastes.This one is my aunt's recipe which she made when I visited her this vacation.She's a great cook and many of her dishes goes into my children's lunch box without fail.As soon as the school re-opened I had to prepare this pulao for my children as a new menu for this year.

Add the rice and saute for 2 min and add salt
Combine coconut milk and water and pour into the sauted rice

Add a cup of mixed vegetables while sauting onions and convert it to vegetable pulao
