Pulav is the most comforting and one pot meal. I make this when I want something quick and easy when I have less time on hand. All I have to do is make a pulav and pair it with raita. That's it :)  This is extremely tasty pulav using the main ingredient as Mushrooms which are the powerhouse of nutrition and have high anti oxidant. Here the mushroom are sauteed with fried onions and for the spicy flavour, I have used adding pepper which gives a hot spicy taste and also very healthy to use in recipe as well :)


1 Cup Basmati rice.

1 1/2 Cup Water

2 Cloves

1 Stick Cinnamon

1 Elachi

1 Star anise.

1 tsp Lime juice.

Salt to taste


1 Big Onion.

2 Cup Mushrooms chopped

1 tsp Garam masala

11/2 tsp Ginger garlic paste.

2 tsp Pepper pd

1 tsp Vinegar

1 tbsp Butter.

Salt to taste.

Clean the rice 3 times and soak in a 1 1/2 cup water. Add the rest of ingredients and keep for about half an hour. Later pressure cook the rice using the same soaked water and soon as its done, keep the rice for cooling.

Heat butter in a pan. Add onions and fry them till translucent. Add ginger garlic paste and saute till the raw smell disappears. Drop the mushrooms and cook till its done. Add pepper power and garam masala and fry for about 2 min. Now add the cooked rice with a spoon of vinegar and stir well till its well combined. Garnish them with coriander leaves or greens of spring onions and serve hot :)
