Vegetable pulao is a great substitute for chicken pulao, and it is a perfect recipe to pack for lunch. The vegetables and spices added to the rice make it healthier and flavorsome. The fried breads bring an additional taste to the dish. Kids will love this recipe, and it will be the best trick to make them eat vegetables. Onion raita and brinjal curry create a perfect combo along with this pulao.
