Vegan Thursday: Brown Rice Peas- and- Seeds Pulao, gluten free
|This is a complete meal, especially if you add some salad to boost up the veg content, as it contains protein from all 4 sources: pulses, nuts, seeds and grains.|
It also looks very attractive. We also added some sev/chevda spicy mix and tomato ketchup, for an instant bhel puri-
cum-tava pulao-style street food experience (and ate it before I could take any pictures!)
- First, cook the rice in twice the amount of water with a pinch of salt. Ensure that it has absorbed all the cooking water.
- In your tava or wok, lightly roast the nuts and seeds in the oil. Stir-fry the peppers, add the peas and corn and throw in the nuts and seeds. Add the seasonings.
- Finally, add the cooked rice and mix everything well, heating gently and thoroughly. Adjust the seasonings now if you like.
- Serve with sev mamra and chutney mixed in, accompanied by a salad, with a dollop of tahini, or just as it is.
