Tawa Pulao

Tawa Pulao, a very tasty Rice Recipe which I adapted from a famous Chef in India. I also heard Tawa Pulao is a popular roadside dish in Mumbai. Tawa is a griddle and this dish is made either on a pan or a griddle. The unique part of this dish is the addition of the "Pav Bhaji" masala which is available at any Indian Grocery Store. It takes hardly 10 minutes to prepare if you use previously cooked rice.

Ingredients: Tawa Pulao
  • 1 Cup Cooked Basmati Rice
  • 1 Onion Chopped
  • 1 Tomato Chopped
  • 2-3 Cauliflower Florets
  • 1/2 cup Green Peas
  • 1/2 Red Bell Pepper
  • 1/2 inch Ginger Sliced
  • 1 tsp Cumin Seeds
  • 1 tbsp Pav Bhaji Masala
  • Chopped Cilantro
  • 1 tbsp Lemon Juice
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
Heat oil in a Pan/Griddle/Tawa and add the Cumin Seeds. To this add the finely chopped onions, frozen cauliflower florets, sliced ginger and stir them on high heat. Add the chopped tomatoes and the red pepper, keep stirring. Mash the green peas and keep it aside to be used later.

Next, add the Pav Bhaji Masala and mix well with all the cooked vegetables. Add the Rice and the mashed Green Peas. Once done, add the lemon juice and garnish with Chopped Cilantro. Serve it hot.

I sometimes add other vegetables like carrots and french beans.
