Veg Pulao/Vegetable pulao

This is a easy and filling one pot meal… Only work is choping the veggies. If thats ready this pulao can be done in a jiffy. I added normal warm milk, if you like, you can add thin coconut milk also. This goes well with any rich gravy like paneer butter masala, chicken masala and simply with raita too.
