Tawa Pulao |Spicy Vegetable Tawa Pulao|How to Make Tawa Pulao ~ Street food Recipes

Pulao/ Pilaf recipes

Tawa pulao is a easy to make scrumptious variety rice which is most popular street of Mumbai , as the name suggest it is generally made on tawa but I used a wide pan as I didn't have a wide tawa to make them. As you know the very famous street food Pav bhaji is also made in huge tawa.This a quick rice variety you can make any time and enjoy :) The key ingredient used in this rice preparation is the pava bhaji masala , You can add more or less as you like the spice level I usually like this pulao spicy. This pulao goes well as is with chopped onion and lemon squeezed on top but can also accompany it with yogurt/ raita.  You can include the vegetables as you like here I used beans, Carrot, capsicum and peas. some like to add potatoes to this rice too but i skipped it.Some really think pulao should be plain white but this a spicy pulao remember it is better to remain red hot ;) ..Lets quickly move on to the recipe to make these spicy pulao..
