Roasted Vegetables pulao

Roasted fried rice final


Vegetable pulao is delicious, flavourful dish which is an easy and healthy way to indulge vegetables.  This pulao recipe is unlike other pulao recipes just that are roasted vegetables instead of cooking it along with rice. Oven roasted vegetables have a unique flavour and crunchiness. However it can be customized with your favourite vegetables.

It is a easy lunch recipe with mixed roasted vegetables, perfect for lunch box and as one pot meal.

I served with Aubergine and Babycorn in Coriander gravy (Recipe link). You can also serve with any gravy of your choice (Click here for recipes)

Methi raw mango brown rice

Mango rice


This recipe is similar to the mango rice/mavinakayi chitranna which is rice based dish most commonly prepared in south india. Chitranna/yellow rice is prepared by initial seasoning followed by sauting of onion and grated raw mango scrapes. Here the variation is I have used brown rice to add the fiber to the dish and fenugreek/methi leaves.

Because of its bitter taste many prefer to avoid eating fenugreek so add fresh leaves to food like dals, rice, curries and parathas to consume it healthy.
