Soy Chorizo Pulav - Kheema Pulav - Vagan

We get this vegan chorizo and its my favorite to use it in different dishes, I love As Khema Masala  or  Soy Chorizo and Jeera Rice - Vegetarian. , Soy Chorizo and Vegetables stuff Enchiladas, So this is another dish which comes quickly . I made it in pan but you can use pressure cooker or instapot too. I just wanted to see all the steps that's why I used the pan. Its just basic pulav recipe when you crave for non veg food but can not have it, this types of dish comes very handy to give you satisfaction. Just put all your whole spices first, sauté onion with ginger garlic paste, powder masala, chorizo, frozen peas , rice, mint leaves and done. If you like you can add little yogurt in the gravy to give nice savory taste. 

I used soy chorizo since I have it, but you can use soy granules which is available easily. 

Ingredients :

1 cup soy chorizo
1 cup rice if you have time you can soaked it for 30 minutes
2 tbsp. Ghee
1 tsp cumin seeds
1/2 tsp black peppercorns
2 chopped tomato
2 inch cinnamon stick
2 bay leaves
2 dry red chilies
1 medium onion thin long slices
1  tbsp. ginger garlic paste
1 green chili slit
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 or 2 tbsp. red chili powder - depend on your spice level
handful of mint leaves 
salt as per taste
1/2 cup frozen peas
water as needed mostly one and half cups
Few coriander leaves for garnish
Served with kachumber  and slice of lemon

Method : 

In a pan, add ghee, then add Jeera and whole spices, sauté for 30 seconds or till cumin cooked. 

Add onions and cook till its brown, add ginger garlic paste, slit chili in it and add tomatoes in it. 

Cook till tomatoes and paste cooked. Add powder masala and mix well.

Add chorizo and rice and cook for a minute. 

Add water and mint and peas and mix it together. 

Add salt and cover and let it cook till the water is gone and the rice is cooked, make sure its separated grain not like khichdi and mushy.

  1. This Pilau looks delicious. I love the way your rice has cooked perfectly with each grain showing. I have not used soy chorizo as yet as it's quite new here in the UK but I have soy granules so will try your recipe soon.

  2. This pulao is something that my hubby would relish and go gaga over . He loves soya granules and soya chunks a lot . The rice has been cooked so perfectly with each grain showing separately.

  3. Looks so yummy and inviting. I must try this Soy Chorizo
