Coconut milk Pulao rice

in Natural Medicine15 days ago (edited)

Hello beautiful foodies! Today I made a simple vegan recipe coconut milk rice pulao.
This flavourful aromatic rice goes with any curry or even without curry or a simple fresh chutney goes well with it.


In cooking pulao rice, you can add any veggies you have. The ratio of rice & coconut milk is 1: 1 1/2, you must use the same glass/cup to measure the rice and coconut milk. In here I used Both, fresh coconut milk and canned coconut milk. I haven't add onions to this dish, however if you want, you may add onions right after adding whole spices.

Beforehand, I would like to say many thanks to #naturalmedicine @justinparke @riverflows and to all the members of this beautiful community.
I would like to share my menu for this week 6 Powerplant Challenge. So let's get started.

Mint leaves 3/4 cup
