Veg Pulav with a twist of Chat Masala

Chat items/snacks are always very tempting. And they leave us with finger licking fate.

I just gave a thought of adding the chat masala taste to the traditional Vegetable Pulav. And the additional adding of chat masala indeed came out very interesting and different in taste. 

Vegetable Pulav with Raitha+recipe for vegetable pulav

I have never done a pulav without coriander leaves paste. But, this time coriander leaves were out of stock and I mustered courage to carry on with an unusual recipe of pulav.

Here is the list of ingredients:

  • 1 spoon ghee.
  • Half spoon sesame seeds,
  • Half spoon jeera,
  • 2 medium sized onions.
  • 8-10 pods of garlic.
  • 1 inch of ginger slice.
  • 2 medium sized carrots.
  • Few beans.
  • One medium sized potato.
  • 2 fists of green peas.
  • 2 fists of groundnuts.
  • Salt and turmeric as per your convenience.
  • 1 spoon garam masla (I have used MTR masala)
  • 2 spoon chat masala (again from MTR)
  • 1 cup Basmati rice.
  • 1.5 cup water.


  • Soak rice and green in water for about 4 hours. The more you soak, the  better.

  • I prepare pulav directly in the pressure cooker. Heat ghee in the cooker vessel, add sesame seeds and jeera.
  • Then add chopped onions, garlic, and ginger and fry till onion turns pale.
  • Add groundnuts and fry a little further.

Serve with mixed vegetable raitha.

I was so much in doubt when I had opened the cooker lid (of course after cooking. :-P) about the taste. And yummm, the smell was so overpowering. And the taste too.

I am never going to miss the chat masala in my pulav recipe now on. Happy Dance. :-)
