Mix vegetable pilaf

This is one simple and quick recipe for those tiring weekdays. This recipe can be made with leftover boiled rice as well (which is what exactly I did). This contains a lot of vegetables and you can add all the available veggies and serve it with simple pickle or yogurt. It is very filling food and easy to prepare.. I whipped it up in 15 minutes..


Boiled rice: 2 cups
Cooking oil: 3 tsp.
Cumin seeds: 1 tsp.
Onion (chopped): 1
Potato (chopped): 2 (medium sized)
Carrot (chopped): 1
Ginger (grated): 1 inch
Green chilli (chopped): 1
Tomato (chopped): 1 (big size) I used 6 cocktail tomatoes, halved.
Peas: 1/4 cup
Salt to taste
Red chilly powder: 1/2 tsp.
Coriander powder: 1/2 tsp.
Garam masala: 1/2 tsp.
A lot of coriander leaves to garnish

  1.  Heat oil and crackle the cumin seeds. Add the chopped onions and fry until they start getting transparent.
  2. Add the potatoes, carrots and any other veggies (boiled cauliflower, beans, capsicum) you would love to add and sprinkle salt. Let them cook completely. This will take about 10 minutes.
  3. Add the ginger, green chilli and the tomatoes. Add the peas and the spice powders: red chilli powder, coriander powder and garam masala. Mix everything well and cook until the peas are done and the tomatoes are soft. 
  4. Add the boiled rice and mix everything well. Turn off the flame after 2 minutes and garnish with a lot of coriander leaves. Simple and healthy veggie pilaf is ready !!
