This is the best one pot meal one can have for lunch. It is cooked with some aromatic Indian spices & only green veggie ......this simple green pulao is loaded with tons of flavours because of mint leaves, coriander leaves and green chillies puree. Overall this delicious pulao is magnificent on its own way, I have added small chunks of fried paneer to make it extra yummy & this can be enjoyed with a bowl of onion raita or simple curd!!

This green pulao is my personal favourite which is delicious as well as flavourful. This is quite a popular dish among vegetarian. It can be served for both lunch and dinner. It is aromatic as well as very light. Whenever there is some leftover rice, most of the time I prefer to make this green pulao. Indeed it's a complete one pot meal, which is filling as well as healthy.

Indian people love to eat rice and there are different varieties of it. Different State have there own creations, let it be curd rice, khichdi, Biryani, pulao & lot more. These are basically one pot meal which is easy to make in less time.

These dishes are quite popular among working people's. Just a bowl of flavourful rice & Raita & we are done.
