Let’s talk about the ingredients for tiranga rice recipe

Tricolour pulao recipe calls for vegetables of green and orange colour. It gets it white colour from rice. I have used carrots and peas. You can use tomato puree, french beans, coriander paste etc. Generally tricolour pulao recipes show 3 different layers of rice. Such tricolour pulao recipes could be a bit time consuming and effort taking. This recipe can be prepared quickly and easily. Since the rice had to be kept white, I did not use any spices except cumin seeds. However to add some heat I added slit green chillies while cooking the tricolour vegetable pulao and discarded them once the pulao was ready.

Other pulao recipes are peas pulao, gatta pulao etc. Peas pulao is a winter’s delight and the first thing I make when I see fresh peas. Find the recipe here. Gatta pulao is a delicacy from the state of Rajasthan. Find the recipe for this interesting pulao here.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
