Tawa pulao is totally new for me, I have not even heard about it until I saw in few blogs. Yet I didn’t go through the recipe and had no idea about the taste. Then while chatting with Aparna, she insisted few times to try and assured it comes out yummy. So I searched to know more about the recipe and found it is a famous Mumbai road side dish. Then I asked my little co-sis if she had tasted that before as she lives north, but sadly she too hadn’t. So I was thinking for long time how it would taste. I image searched for tawa pulao to see how it really looks in the road side shops. It looked more tempting for me. And in a site I read that, it is made in the side of the same tawa where the bhaji is being kept bubbling. They add some rice to the tawa, include some bhaji and add in some extra butter, masala powders to jazz it up and serve instantly. I saw a picture as well of the same. It looked more appealing for me. But when we want to make it from scratch, it is a bit different. I finally made it today for lunch and loved it. Aj too had that without any complains. This is best to make use of the left over rice. So do try when you had some leftover rice and yet we add veggies to it, so a perfect one pot meal for lazy day! While browsing, I found this recipe from this blog and adapted it.
Serve hot with raw onions, coriander leaves garnished and a dash of lemon juice too.
