Vegetable Pulao in rice cooker ( using boiled ponni rice)

By | December 19, 2016

After making Vegetable biriyani successfully using boiled ponni rice, I got confidence to make other rice varieties using it. This time I made Vegetable Pulao and it also turned great.??



Boiled ponni rice – 1 1/2 cups

Water – 2 cups

Coconut milk – 2 cups

Carrot – 1 big finely chopped

Green Peas – 1/4 cup ( I used frozen)

Onion – 1/2 cup thinly sliced

Green chilli – 2 slit lengthwise

Ginger garlic paste – 1/2 tsp

Bay leaf – 1

Cinnamon stick – a small piece

Cloves – 2

Cardamom – 1 or 2

Butter – 1 tsp

Oil – 1 tsp

Salt – as required


  • Soak rice for 30 mins and drain water. Keep it aside.
  • Heat oil and butter in a pan. When the butter melts add bay leaf, cinnamon stick, cloves and cardamom.
  • Stir for few seconds and add onions ,green chillies. When onions turn translucent add ginger garlic paste.
  • When the raw smell goes add carrots and green peas. Stir and cook covered for 2 minutes.
  • Add drained rice. Stir thoroughly. Transfer to the rice cooker.
  • Add water and coconut milk. Add required salt. Switch on rice cooker.
  • When done serve along with your favorite gravy.



  1. You can add cashews and raisens while sauteing onions.
  2. You can add only water or change water , coconut milk ratio as per your choice.
