Tangy Vegetable Pulao

Tangy Vegetable Pulao

There is a story behind this recipe… Last night my husband wanted to go outside for dinner but that was not possible because it was too late and all the restaurants were closed.Then I prepared a tangy dish with rice, vegetables and some spices. Due to its tangy flavor, I named it TANGY VEGETABLE PULAO and served it with yogurt. My husband loved it and that was awesome. So I would like to share my tangy recipe with you….
