Blogging Marathon# 45: Week 4/ Day 3

Theme: Revisiting Old Recipes

Dish: Pudina Vegetable Pulao

One problem with blogging regularly is that I am constantly trying out new recipes to post here on the blog and don’t usually find time to go back and cook old recipes. Whenever Valli has ‘Revisiting recipes‘ theme for blogging marathon, I make sure to sign up for it so I get a chance to remake the dish and redo the photos.

Mint flavored Vegetable Pilaf

This Pudina Vegetable Pulao is from my early blogging days way back from 2006 — more than 8 years back. This was the fanciest rice dish I knew in those days and made it regularly until my pulao & biryani repertoire started growing and this simple one pot meal became a rarity in my house.

I made this dish when I was short of time and wanted to make something really quick with not too many dishes to clean. I used frozen veggies and cooked the rice in the pressure cooker for a quick and easy one pot meal. I harvested the last of my mint leaves for this season and used it in the dish.
