Mushroom Pulao Recipe is a one pot meal could be made in a pan or pressure cooker. This pulao is easy to make and could be clubbed with papad, salad or onion raita. I am fond of mushrooms hence come up with many such recipes and it’s great for health too 🙂
It could be also termed as green mushroom pulao as I have used green herb paste. Later I have added coconut milk which gives a great flavor to the pulao. For seasoning have used Indian whole garam masalas and green chili paste.
I had some purple cabbage so made use of that too however it’s optional. You could add veggies like potatoes for added flavor and taste. The pulao is slightly spicy so add chilies moderately or add more of coconut milk to balance the taste.
We eat a lot of rice hence make a variety of pulaos and biryanis. Sometimes when we get bored of rice then I jump onto making parathas, dosas etc. In short we love food of any kind it has to be delicious, hygienic and made with love 🙂
Mushrooms are very versatile just like paneer. You could make a variety of dishes from them like tandoori mushroom, mushroom pakora, mushroom biryani, mushroom soup, mushroom duxelle, stuffed mushroom in parathas the list is endless. Do include them in your diet as it’s power packed with protiens, amino acid, minerals and vitamin’s.
