Guest post from FillMyRecipe: Vegetable Rice (Pulav) seasoning mix

My girls are still absolutely crazy about rice, and these days I've been packing a hot thermos with rice dishes to send in my daughter's school lunch every day. I try to mix it up with the spices a little to give her different tastes from around the world. Today with the help of FillMyRecipe I made her a little taste of India for her lunch tomorrow using the spices for vegetable rice (pulav).

Her pre-packaged seasoning mix comes with all spices needs to make this delicious dish.

Pulav seasoning mix (single use)

½ tsp cumin seeds
2 pods green cardamom
1 pod black cardamom
1 bay leaf
1” stick cinnamon
¼ tsp clove
Pinch of saffron

What else you'll need

1 cup chopped vegetables (carrots, peas, green beans)
2 tsp oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup long-grained rice or basmati rice

To garnish

2 tsp oil,
1 tbsp chopped cashews
1 tbsp raisins
1/2 cup white onions chopped thin & long (optional)

Cooking Directions

Remove spices marked with * before serving

1. Heat oil in skillet on medium heat, lightly brown cumin seeds, green cardamom*, black cardamom*, bay leaf*, cinnamon*, clove* for 20 seconds.

2. Add chopped vegetables, stir fry 1 min

3. Add washed and strained rice, stir fry 1 min

4. Add water, saffron and salt, cook covered until rice is ready (Note: you could cook mixture in a rice cooker if you like)


5. Garnish: fry cashews, onions and raisins in 2 tsp oil for 1 min until golden brown. Add garnish to cooked rice and vegetables, mix and serve hot

The rice was perfect, fragrant and delicious (I managed to sneak in a few bites while packing her lunch). Definitely another hit from FillMyRecipe!

  2. Some cakes like sugar free pancakes or soufflé recipe call for egg white alone. One table spoon plain agar powder with one tablespoon water can be used to substitute on egg white. The powder can be found at healthy food stores or even Chinese food stores.
