Tawa Pulao – Delhi Street Food

Tawa Pulao is very popular street food in Delhi and Mumbai. Tawa Pulao as name suggests, it’s made on tawa. The street vendors have big tawa which most probably used for pav bhaji or hot dog type of street food. 

Tawa pulao is a quick recipe which made with par boiled rice or leftover rice. You have to cook the rice and vegetables together and sauté with masala on tawa. Generally street vendors used butter and pav bhaji masala to make this pulao that enhance the taste more and little spicy in taste. I made this recipe for blogging marathon under Indian cuisine theme, hope my foodie friend like it and share feedback.
