This can be called Instant Pulav..because, once you have things ready, it is exactly a 5 minute easy and yet tasty...
This is so easy in the sense, there is no grinding job...
I have made this frequently for my children during their school and college days...feel so nostalgic....

Basmati rice - 1 cup, soaked in water for 15 minutes and drained
Water - 1 3/4 cups
Ginger-garlic paste - 1 tsp
Chilli powder - 1 tsp
Coriander powder - 1 tsp
Jeera powder - 1 tsp
Garam masala powder - 1 tsp
Cooking oil - 2 tbsps
Ghee -  2 - 3 tbsps
Jeera - 1 tsp, to season

 Onion - 1, cut into long strips
Carrot - 1, small, cut into juliennes
Green beans - 8-10, cut into strips
Fresh peas - 1/4 cup
Green bell pepper - 1/2, cut into strips
Red bell pepper - 1/2, cut into strips

Recipe cuisine: North Indian; Category: Lunch/Dinner
Prep time: 10 mts; Rice soaking time: 10-15 mts; Cooking time: 5 mts

Serves 2-3

Heat a pressure pan with oil and ghee(without reducing the quantity), otherwise, it will stick to the cooker bottom

Add Jeera

Now, add the onions, and the two colored bell peppers

Add ginger-garlic paste

Mix well, then add all the veggies, along with chilli, jeera, coriander and garam masala powders

Now, add the soaked and drained rice, with enough salt to taste

Mix well

Add 13/4 cups of hot water

Close the lid, and cook for 2 whistles.

 Allow the pressure to release by itself.

Fluff it up with a fork.

I shifted the Pulav to a hot casserole, and this is how the cooker looked............clean....

Serve this Quick, Instant,5-minute, Awesome, Amazing, Tasty, Delicious, Yum yum Pulav with Watermelon raita........

* So easy to make this kind of pulav, when some unexpected guest turns in. As you cut the veggies, you can allow the rice to soak till then...that's all...all you have to do it, dump everything into the cooker, in steps mentioned above , and cook for 2 whistles...isn't it so easy???
