2 cups – Mixed vegetables (bell peppers, beans, carrot, potato, peas and whatever you have in the refrigerator)

Chop all the vegetables in equal sizes.
In the casserole, heat the oil. Add bay leaf, cinnamon, clove and let it release the aroma. Add the julienned onions and sauté till they turn transparent and pink. Add chopped vegetables and sauté for 3 to 5 minutes.
Add pudina chutney and sauté till the water in the chutney dries up. This shouldn’t take more than a minute. Add tomatoes. Add 4 cups of water and let it boil. Add salt to taste, keeping in mindthe salt already being present in the chutney. Let the water come to a boil.
Once the water starts boiling add the washed rice and lemon juice and mix well. Once the water starts to boil, reduce the flame to low, cover the casserole with lid and let the rice cook.
Let the rice cook for 10 minutes. Once in between give the pulav a mix. Once the rice is cooked, add a ghee and cover the lid and let it sit for couple of minutes.
