Pickle Pulav

Cooks in: 20 Minutes Serves: 2 People

This simple pulav variety can be prepared with pickle and some veggies available at home without much planning! Avakai,cut mango, gongura or tomato pickles are best suited for this dish. I used Varagu/ Kodo Millet for this recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Cup Kodo Millet
  • 2 Tsp Pickle gravy ( I used home made avakai pickle)
  • 1 Cup Chopped Veggies ( a mix of carrot, peas, cauliflower and beans)
  • 1/4 Tsp Salt
  • 1 Tsp Ghee
  • 1 Tsp Jeera

Directions:

  1. Wash and soak millet for 30 minutes.
  2. In a 2 Ltr PressureCooker
  3. Layer 1: Grease the cooker bottom with ghee.
  4. Layer 2: Add Jeera.
  5. Layer 3: Spread the drained millet to cover the bottom of the cooker.
  6. Layer 4: Pickle
  7. Layer 5: Spread veggies evenly.
  8. Layer 6: Salt
  9. Pour 1.5 cups of water from the inner sides of the cooker, so that the layering is not disturbed.
  10. Close and cook for 3 whistles. Let the pressure settle down. Open and fluff up after 10 minutes.
  11. Yummy pickle pulav is ready!
