Vegetable Tawa Pulav ( For Potluck Cyberstyle )

Pulavs and biryanis are an inevitable part of Indian food and no party is complete without a rice dish. This Tawa Pulav which I have made  is a complete meal with variety of vegetables and tofu ( you can use paneer too ) . 

These vegetables and the tawa sabzi masala lends this pulav a superb aroma which simply is irresistible. You can also use pav bhaji masala in place of sabzi masala . Have it with a simple dahi raita or include this rich pulav in you party menu along with other special dishes.


 Today I made this for  Potluck Party by Jagruti

1/2 cup................carrots (cubed )
1/2 cup...............onions (cubed)

Method :

Boil 4 cups water in a big pan with salt .
