Cast your vote for Soya Puloa

Most of the masala rice recipe contains onion and garlic as it’s an ingredient. But this Soya pulao which is spicy (If you want to add more spices you can) and same time is pure vegetarian (some people include onion-garlic as non-veg spice).Every Friday I thought what new to cook , because this is the Veg-Day for us.So I see the recipe in a cooking show hosted by Sanjeev Kapoor and instantly try at home.It is a very less time consuming, healthy and delicious dish which no longer needed any side dish too.Though one can try it with Aloo Dumwale / mixed vegetable or Some Chicken/Mutton Dishes.
