Pulao as street food ? Yes that was my exact reaction when I saw a dish called Tawa pulao on the menu of a stall for the first time in khaugalli (a place in Mumbai famous for street food). One can find Tawa Pulao on the menu of almost every Pav-bhaji stall in Mumbai. Interestingly this dish has almost all the Pav-bhaji ingredients in it. The original recipe involves preparation on a hot flat pan, also called as a tawa and hence the name. We participated in a potluck recently and the theme was Mumbai night. I was the last one to select the menu and decided to make this dish. Spicy tawa pulao can be a one-pot meal. Go ahead and try it if you havent !! Here is the recipe. Ingredients Rice - 3 cups (cooked) Peas - 1/4 cup French beans - 1/4 cup Carrots - 1/4 cup Cauliflower - 1/4 small cubes Potatoes - 1/4 cup peeled, slicedTomatoes- 1/4 cup chopped Onion - 1/2 cup chopped Ginger-garlic paste - 1 Tbsp Pav-Bhaji masala - 11/2 Tbsp Lime juice - 1Tbsp Butter and oil Salt Chopped Cilantro and onion wedges for garnishing.Procedure 1.
