Soya Chunks Pulav



Ingredients
Basmathi Rice: 2 ½ cups
Water: 4 cups
Soya chunks: ½ cup
Onion: 1
Mixed vegetables with corn: 1 cup (I used carrot, beans, green peas and corn)
Ginger-Garlic Paste: 1tbsp
Lemon Juice: of 1 lemon
Bay leaves: 2
Cloves: 5
Cardamom: 4
Aniseed: 2
Cinnamon Stick: 2
Salt: needed
Butter/Ghee/Refined Oil: 4-6tbsp (you can use more ghee if needed)
Coriander leaves: few (optional)
Method Of Preparation
Wash and soak rice for about 1 hour. (Drain it after 1 hour)
Soak soya chunks in hot water to about 15-20 minutes. Then squeeze and wash well and keep aside. (Squeeze and wash well so as to remove the raw smell of soya chunks)
Heat butter/ghee in a pan add thinly sliced onion and take out when it turns golden brown and keep aside.
To the same ghee add the mixed vegetables, sauté for 3-4 minutes and take out from ghee and keep aside.
Then add the soya chunks to it and roast it for 4-5 minutes and take out from ghee.
Then add bay leaves, cinnamon, cardamom, cloves and aniseed to it and stir for a minute and add ginger garlic paste and stir for a minute. Then add water to it. When water boils add drained rice, roasted vegetables and soya chunks to it.
Add salt and lemon juice too. Close with a lid.
When boils lower the flame and stir occasionally till you get it done.
Switch off the flame and add fried onions and coriander leaves.
Serve hot with any kind of raita or any side dish as per your desire.
