Coconut Milk Veg Pulao

Coconut milk is very rich and heavy also. This dish is a quick and fast making, if the ingredients are ready. I can call it a special dish ,mostly i don’t make it often….cos this is heavy and coconut milk is a fatty ingredient too… once in a while adding coconut milk in rice dishes is ok for our health. Coconut milk enhance the taste of any dish in our indian way of cooking , when I cook cocnut milk with vegetables it gives a good aroma and taste. Whoever likes coconut milk dishes will surely likes a pulao like this. I have not added water . This dish is fully cooked with coconut milk. weight concious people can substitute 2 cup of water instead of coconut milk.... :)

Ingrediants
Basmathi rice  1 cup 
Onion  ¼ cup (chopped finely)
Vegetables (peas, carrot and beans) ½  cup
Cut carrot and beans in to fine pieces
Ginger garlic paste 1 ½ tsp   
Garam masala 1tsp   
Coconut Milk 3cup (1 cup thick milk and 2 cup diluted milk)
Hand full of  corriander leaves
Ghee and oil for frying.
Salt to taste.
Method
Wash and soak rice for 10 min. Fry rice in a pan with little ghee and fry till moisture absorbed.
Heat  oil/ghee in a heavy bottom pan . Add onions and garam masala, fry well. Add all the vegetables and little salt. Fry for some time. Then add ginger garlic paste. And coriander leaves, fry in high flame. Add coconut milk and salt for rice... Transfer everything to the rice cooker and  keep it in the cook mode when the steam starts coming add rice. When the mode changes to warm, switch off the cooker and serve hot.
 Note : If there is no rice cooker we can cook it in the pan itself …….when the vegetables and coconut milk comes to boil then add the rice and cook in medium flame. And Dum it well.
