Soya /Nutrela Pulao is a dish that is loaded with veggies and spices which give it a memorable exotic flavour.

A spicy, delicious Soya Pulao is an Indian weeknight dinner table favorite, and it comes together quickly with pantry ingredients. Kids love it too!

Saffron and caraway seeds are optional which can be added to give this rice preparation a rich aroma, taste and veggies, soya chunks give it a wonderful range of textures.

I would suggest to use Basmati rice for great rice meal. A raita like my cucumber raita goes best with this pulao. Serve with poppadum on the side for a delightful meal.

The soya has fully cooked and fluffy

The rice is cooked so well

Look at the grains, so beautiful
