Easy Vegetable Pulao | Pressure cooker Pulao

This is a recipe for a simple pulao which can be done in the essential Indian cooking device, the pressure cooker. It is a mix of my Peas Pulao and Coconut milk rice recipe. I had never tried using shallots aka pearl onions before now in a pulao recipe. I ran out of regular onions and used shallots in place of them. I can't stress enough but try using them in your pulao recipes next time, it tastes awesome.

Serves - 2
Rice - 1 cup (160 ml)
Carrots - 2, chopped
Peas - a handful
Pearl onions - 4, peeled and sliced into rounds
Ginger garlic paste - 1 tsp
Bay leaf - 1
Garam masala - 1/2 tsp
Oil - 2 tsp
Coconut milk - 1 cup
Water - 1 cup
Salt - to taste
Wash and soak the rice for 5 minutes, then drain the water. Heat oil in a pressure cooker and add the bay leaf. After a minute or so add the sliced onions and saute until they turn pink. Add the ginger garlic paste and saute in medium heat for 2 minutes. Now add the carrots, peas and garam masala with salt. Add the rice and fry for a minute. Add the coconut milk, water and check for salt. Cover and pressure cook for 2 whistles. Fluff with a fork and serve hot with any spicy curry. I served with Bahara Baingan.
