Jaipuri vegetable pulao -Vegetable Pulav recipe - Rice one pot meal - Party food - Biryani rice

I love one pot meals that saves time yet you can impress your family and guests with it. Normally when we go out we don't order rice. For a change other day when we visited kailash parbat we have decided to try some rice. I didn't want to order normal peas or Jeera pulav. Wanted to try something new. When I saw this Jaipuri pulao it sounded rich and interesting. So decided to give it a try. It was really tasty. So I have tried at home.
