Soya Chunks Pulao Recipe


A simple and clean pulao, taste fantastic with any spicy curries or gravies..I made it quite easy, in my opinion, pulao has to be simple without lots of spice powders but it should have a whole lot of flavour from the whole spices. 


I have a quite a few pulao recipe in this blog. Check out my Spicy Aloo Peas Pulao, Peas Pulao and many more..For Non Veg Version, check out my Chicken Pulao & Mutton Pulao


Preparation Time : 10 mins
Cooking Time : 40 to 45 mins (Includes cooking soya chunks)
Serves : 3 to 4

Ingredients:

Basmati Rice - 1 cup ( I used normal cooking rice )
Onions - 1 large sliced thinly
Green Chillies - 4 to 5 slit lengthwise
Peas - 1 cup Optional ( I used frozen )
Salt to taste
Water - 1.5 cup
Oil - 1 tblspn
Ghee - 1 tblspn

Whole Spices:
Cinnamon / Pattai - 4 cm stick
Fennel Seeds / Sombu / Saunf - 2 tsp
Cumin Seeds / Jeerakam - 1 tsp ( I used Shahi Jeera)
Cloves / Krambu - 4 piece
Star Anise / Natchathira Sombu - 1
Kal Paasi / Black Stone Flower - 2 piece

Method:

Wash and Soak Basmati Rice for 30 mins. Cook Soya Chunks as per this direction and set aside.

Heat Oil and Ghee in a pressure cooker.

Add in all whole spices and let them sizzle for a min. Add in sliced onions and green chillies. Sprinkle some salt and cook the onions till it turns golden.

Now add in ginger and garlic paste and saute for a min.

Add in peas, garam masala powder and soya chunks. Toss well.

Add in soaked rice and mix well in the masala.

Pour in water and mix well. Bring this whole thing to a boil, simmer and cook for 1 whistle, simmer the flame and let it cook on a very low heat for 7 to 8 min. Switch off the heat and let them steam go all by itself. Open the cooker and fluff the rice.

Serve it with your favorite curry.
