Vegetable Pulao

Yesterday, I prepared Vegetable Pulao and raita. The vegetables I use for the regular pulao are carrots, beans, peas and potatoes. I rarely use cauliflower and capsicum for pulao. I use whole spices instead of masala powder which yields an aromatic mild flavor to the rice and a combination of ghee and oil for frying the vegetables which brings out their flavor beautifully.
