Garden vegetable medley has roasted potato, snap peas and red bell pepper along with garden herbs. It may be tasty by itself, however I wanted to incorporate this mix in a dish. First I thought of making a pasta with it, however dropped that idea as I needed to make lunch yesterday. So I made tawa pulao, with garden vegetable medley and added green peas, carrot, tomato, ginger garlic paste and onions and spiced it with pav bhaji masala , green chili, cumin seeds and red chili powder. I used matta rice (parboiled red rice) which is common in Kerala, instead of basmati rice which commonly used. Normally they make it in a large flat girdle similar to Spanish paella pan called tawa. I don’t have it in my hand so I tried with my own skillet. It came spicy, tasty and I had it with yogurt and potato chips.
