When kids wanted to have something different from the regular veg pulav or biriyani, I tried making something new which became a hit with them. Here is the recipe for the same. 

Basmti Rice - 2 cups
Cheese - 100 gms (grated)
Onion - 2 nos
Ginger garlic paste - 2 tbsp
Green Chillies - 4 nos
Ghee - 2 tbsp
Salt to taste
Coriander leaves - 1/4 cup finely chopped

Wash and soak the rice for about 10 to 15 mins. Drain thoroughly. Fry in 1/2 tbsp of ghee and set aside. Chop the onions finely.

In a shallow pan or pressure pan, add the remaining ghee and when hot add onion, green chillies, ginger garlic paste and a pinch of salt. When the onion turns glassy, add the rice and add just 3 cups of water.

Cover with a lid leaving a little space for the steam to escape (if it is a pan) or close it with the lid of the pressure pan and let the steam escape. Let the rice cook for about 10 to 15 mins. (It will not take more than this time).

Reduce the flame, add the grated cheese and coriander leaves. Remove from flame and mix the cheese to the rice. Simple and easy to make Pulav.

      Can add fried cashew nuts, raisins too to this pulav.
