Mushroom Pulao

Mushroom Pulao - Recipe from Blogs
I have made a couple of avoided mint leaves, made it more spicy etc....

Button Mushrooms(Cleaned&Sliced) - 1 cup
Potato - 1nos.
Basmati Rice - 1cup
Onion - 1nos.
Ginger-Garlic Paste - 1/2-1 tsp
Coriander Leaves
Curd - 1tbsp.
Chilli powder - 1/2 tsp.
Coriander powder - 1 tsp
Garam Masala - 1/4-1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/8 tsp
Salt to taste

Whole Spices
Whole Red Chilli - 1
Bay Leaf - 1 small
Cloves -2
Cinnamon - 1 small piece
Star Anise - 1 small piece(Not the whole!)
Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp.


Wash rice and soak in water for 1/2 an hour. Peel & chop the potatoes. Slightly fry the potatoes in oil & keep aside.
Heat oil. Add the whole spices one by one and when done(aroma comes), add the chopped coriander leaves. Saute for while and then add chopped onions & ginger-garlic paste. When onions turn brown, add all the powdered masalas & salt.
Cook for a while & then add the potatoes & mushrooms. Cook covered until the mushrooms are half done or when all the moisture has evaporated. Now, add curd & cook for 1-2min. Add the drained rice & saute for a few minutes. Transfer the contents to a pressure cooker & add 2 1/4 cup of boiling water. Pressure cook until done.(2-3min). Serve garnished with coriander leaves with pickle and/or salad.
