Undhiyu Pulav

To make undhiyu from scratch is takes lot of time. And its only for me so I avoid that but its my favorite dish, so I used frozen undhiyu mix whenever i have craving for that. Its always in my frozen. But in that mix, small eggplants are not good, so i get rid of that and use fresh one. So this is also quick weeknight meal. Pair it with simple kachumber and diner is done.

Ingredients :

1 packet frozen undhiyu mix
2 cups of basmati rice
3 small eggplants
1/4 cup peanuts
1/3 cup desiccated coconut
1/2 cup chopped coriander leaves
4-5 or as per taste green chilies
2 tsp. ginger paste
salt to taste
2 tbsp. Lemon juice
3 tbsp. oil
Whole Spices


Wash and keep aside undhiyu mix.
In a blender, add peanuts, coconut, coriander leaves, green chilies, ginger paste, salt and lime juice and little water to make a paste.
Add that paste in undhiyu mix. Cut the eggplants in the middle and stuff it with green masala too.
Take a pressure cooker (you can make it in big pan too but I wanted to make and eat fast, I did it in cooker)
Add whole spices (black pepper, cloves, green cardamom, cinnamon stick).
When it pop, add undhiyu mix with and rice and enough water and salt and cover with lid.
Cook it on medium flame till two to three whistle.
Let the cooker cool down. Then open up and enjoy with your favorite raita. I had with simple tomato and onion kachumber.
