Cooked Rice -11/2cups
Cubed Veggies -1 cup (I have used a carrot, 5 beans,few cauliflower florets, few pieces of capsicums and a fist full of frozen peas.)
Cumin Seeds- 1teaspoon
Chilli powder- 1 teaspoon
Pav-bhaji Masala - 2 teaspoons
Lemon juice - 1 tablespoon
Cilantro leaves to Garnish
Wash and cube the veggies into uniform chunks.
Chop the tomato into fine pieces.
Sprinkle some water and microwave the Carrot-beans-peas for 2 minutes.
Heat oil in a kadai and roast the cauliflower..once it roasted, add the boiled veggies and stir fry them for 2 minutes and keep them aside. (No need to cook the capsicum)
Add some more oil in the same Kadai, and add the cumin seeds. Once they splutter, add the tomato and cook till it becomes mushy.
Now add turmeric powder,chilli powder,pav-bhaji masala, salt and cooked veggies with 2-3 tablespoons of water. Make sure that the flame is high.
Cook till the raw smell of the masala powders are gone (say 2 minutes) and add the cooked rice.Mix everything well and cook for a minutes. Garnish with cilantro, put off the stove. squeeze the lemon juice and serve hot with any raitha.
While returning from India in last Sep. we had a transit @ Mumbai airport. Enjoyed this Tawa pulao and Paneer curry at the airport!
We had it with Cucumber-onion raitha..
We were in the waiting hall with our luggages and one chai-wala asked us about the dinner plan and he delivered this yummy food from the canteen!
