Achari Pulao with Vegetables and Soya

We are making lot of dishes with achari masala, so why not rice and that too with lot of vegetables and my favorite ingredient, soya nuggets. Well made it for quick diner and loved it and just had it with my favorite kachumber. You can make raita to go with it , its perfect but I am not a big fan of it so just happy with my platter. I used powder achari masala which you can find it here. Try it with ready made pickle masala or even pickle  too. Add your favorite vegetables or even non veg like chicken, mutton , shrimp too.

Ingredients :

2 cups washed and soaked basmati rice
1 cup of mixed vegetables (I used frozen mixed vegetables)
1/2 cup soaked soya granules
1/2 onion chopped
1 tomato chopped
1 tbsp. Ginger, garlic , chili paste
2 tbsp. Achari spice powder
Salt to taste
1tsp. cumin seeds
2 tbsp. oil


You can make this in pressure cooker too but I made it in pan cause I wanted grains to be separated.
Heat a oil in pan, add cumin seeds in it, when it changes the color, add onion.
cook till it becomes brown, add tomato along with ginger, garlic paste.
Cook till its raw smell goes away.
Add achari powder, vegetables, soya , rice and mix nicely.
Add water to cook the rice.
Add salt and mix it and put the lid in it.
Cook it without stirring till all the water is gone and everything cooks.
Shut the flame off and leave it uncovered for 10 minutes.
Take it out and enjoy with raita, salad, dal, kadhi or as it is or old plain kachumber.
