Pudina pulao or pudina rice recipe

Pudina pulao or pudina rice recipe explained with step by step pictures. This is a very tasty, nutritious and most flavorful rice recipe prepared in pressure cooker. Pudina pulao is an one pot meal, prepared using rice, pudina leaves, mixed vegetables and spices. Pudina pulao or pudina rice is very tasty and the recipe is very similar to Karnataka style "vegetable pulav".

In Karnataka most of the rice bath or pulao recipes are prepared using "sona masoori" rice. So this pudina pulav or pudina rice also prepared using the same rice. I have used tomato in this recipe. If you wish you can replace it with lemon juice and mix it at the end before serving.
