Coconut milk pulao, Vegetable pulao with coconut milk

Coconut milk pulao or coconut milk vegetable pulao is a very flavorful and aromatic one pot dish that is simply loaded with veggies. This pulao is made in a simple method using pressure cooker also without involving many ingredients yet is tasty because of the coconut milk. This pulao can be made even with chicken, or soya chunks or can be made without any veggies or meat too. My mom makes this plain coconut pulao without veggies often during summers as the temperature is really high in dubai. For that plain coconut pulao we used to relish with some spicy kurma or vegetable gravy. How much ever we spend money on outside food, mom is always the best cook. Happy to share her simple and easy recipe every time in the blog. This recipe works best for working women and for bachelor’s too as it involves very less time for preparation and cooking. For this recipe I used homemade coconut milk (the second batch/ second milk) which actually adds more taste to the recipe. If you are thinking of some simple and quick to make lunch box  variety rice this should do the job. So let’s get to the making!
