Tawa pulao


Pulao as street food ? Yes that was my exact reaction when I saw a dish called Tawa pulao on the menu of a stall for the first time in khaugalli (a place in Mumbai famous for street food). One can find Tawa Pulao on the menu of almost every Pav-bhaji stall in Mumbai. Interestingly this dish has almost all the Pav-bhaji ingredients in it. The original recipe involves preparation on a hot flat pan, also called as a tawa and hence the name. We participated in a potluck recently and the theme was Mumbai night. I was the last one to select the menu and decided to make this dish. Spicy tawa pulao can be a one-pot meal. Go ahead and try it if you havent !! Here is the recipe.

Ingredients
Rice - 3 cups (cooked)
Peas - 1/4 cup
French beans - 1/4 cup
Carrots - 1/4 cup
Cauliflower - 1/4 small cubes
Potatoes - 1/4 cup peeled, sliced
Tomatoes- 1/4 cup chopped
Onion - 1/2 cup chopped
Ginger-garlic paste - 1 Tbsp
Pav-Bhaji masala - 11/2 Tbsp
Lime juice - 1Tbsp
Butter and oil
Salt
Chopped Cilantro and onion wedges for garnishing.
Procedure
1. Cook some rice (3 cups). Cut the vegetables and half-cook all the vegetables except the tomato and onions.
2. Heat oil in a pan. Saute chopped onions and tomatoes. Put ginger-garlic paste and fry it well.
3. Put Pav-bhaji masala, salt, half-cooked vegetables and cook for 10 minutes.
4. Then add rice, butter, salt and lime juice.
5. Garnish the pulao with chopped cilantro and onion wedges.
