Coconut Milk Veggie Pulao

This is variation of my Coconut Flavored Veggie Pulao. Vegetable Pulao is one rice dish I love to make often. It’s the easiest way to get a good combination of veggies inot ones diet.  Pair it off with a meat curry and yoghurt and a delicious and healthy meal is ready. 

Coconut Milk Veggie Pulao

The current recipe can be considered a lazy day veggie pulao too. The topic for this month’s Monthly Mingle is Ravishing Rice and is being hosted by Edible Garden. This is my entry for the Monthly Mingle.


  • 2 cups Basmati Rice
  • 2 cups frozen mixed stir fry vegetables
  • 3 tbsp ghee
  • 1 1/2 cups coconut milk
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 1 stick cinnamon
  • 4 cloves
  • salt to taste


  • Wash the rice and soak in water for atleast half an hour.
  • Meanwhile heat the ghee in a pan and add the cinnamon stick and  cloves.
  • Next add the frozen veggies and cook till they defrost and are warmed through.
  • Drain the rice and add to the rice cooker
  • Add the coconut milk, water and salt. Mix well
  • Add the vegetables and cook.
  • When done mix well to mix the vegetables into the rice
  • Serve hot with   yoghurt or curry.


  • This seems a bit heavy on the ghee, but as it makes 8 servings, I don’t worry too much about it. The ghee adds flavor which cannot be achieved by oil
  • I skipped adding onions green chilis and ginger garlic paste to create a variation in taste.
