One pot meals are great 30 minute meal options, especially pulaos or pilafs cooked with veggies, rice and protein (lentils/ beans or paneer) are quick to cook and make a complete and nutritious meal. For the 3rd day of our 7-day blogging marathon, I made this quick one dish dinner from Sukham Ayu by Pratibha Jain & Jigyasa Giri. According to the book “Soya leads among legumes in the new world as it is rich in protein content.” Cooking the rice in the pressure cooker makes it easy to make under 30 minutes. I made slight changed to the recipe to suit for taste.
