Ingredients

  • 2 cups of cooked brown rice (any local rice)
  • An inch piece of ginger, grated or pounded
  • 2 cloves of garlic, grated or pounded
  • 1 green bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 2 large tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 1 large potato, boiled and cubed
  • 1/4 cup of green peas, steamed
  • 1/2 cup of green moong sprouts
  • 1/2 teaspoon chaat masala powder
  • 1 teaspoon of pav bhaji masala powder
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 teaspoon Saffola Oil

 

For Garnish

 

  • A small bunch of coriander leaves, chopped
  • Sev or bhujia for servings
  • Lemon wedges to serve

How to make Mumbai Style Tawa Pulao

  • To begin making the Tawa Pulao Recipe, make sure you have some cooked rice ready and the remaining ingredients prepared accordingly
  • Brown rice takes a little while to cook, so it is important to soak the rice for about 30 minutes before you cook them in a saucepan or a pressure cooker
  • Heat Saffola oil in a pan; add the onions, ginger, garlic and bell peppers. Stir-fry on medium heat until the onions and bell peppers are lightly softened. Once the onions and peppers are lightly softened, add the remaining ingredients, except the rice and give it a good stir. Finally add the cooked rice and gently stir to combine the vegetables and the spiced well into the rice
  • Once well combined, check the salt and spice levels and adjust to suit your taste. Cover the pan, turn the heat to low and simmer the Tawa Pulao for about 3 to 4 minutes so the rice absorbs all the spices well
  • After a few minutes, turn off the heat, stir in the coriander leaves and the Tawa Pulao is ready to be served
  • To serve the Tawa Pulao, spoon the rice into a serving bowl, sprinkle some sev or bhujia and squeeze a dash of lemon and enjoy
