Soya chunks pulao

            One pot meals such as pulao is something quite frequent at my place. I make it quite often with different combinations of vegetables or paneer  and a tasty meal is ready in no time.A carrot or beetroot raita is enough to go along with it.. Its a complete meal especially when you add something nutritious such as soya chunks or paneer or even tofu. Even my kid enjoys it.
