Keema – sabji pulao l lamb mince – vegetable pulao


This keema sabji pulao – lamb mince vegetable pulao is a great one pot meal option. It is filling, nutritious and of course, being a one pot meal, you get to wash fewer dishes; and this is always a bonus.

One pot rice meals are so helpful. They are one of my favourite dishes to make. And one can make them in a variety of vegetarian or non vegetarian options. Once all the main ingredients are added to the pot, all one needs to do is to add the liquid, close the lid and let it do its thing. And a few minutes later, a hearty one pot meal is ready to serve and enjoy!

This recipe also comes from the notebook and I have made it numerous times. But, as a home cook, most of the times, I eyeball the ingredients. So, I was very pleased that I did note down this recipe all those years ago and am now able to share it with all of you.

Serving suggestions-

This dish is quite filling. All we needed was just some cooling cucumber raita to go along with it. It will taste great with just some plain yogurt too. If you can be bothered, you can cut up some fresh salad on the side too! Or perhaps, just have it with some pickle.
