Serves: 2


  • Basmati rice- 150g (washed & soaked for 2 hrs or more)
  • Butter- 25g
  • Onion- 1 big size (finely chopped)
  • Turmeric powder- 1 tsp
  • Broad beans- 5-6 (chop horizontally into thin slices. Washed & keep aside. I didn’t use this, as it was not available in the market)
  • French beans- 10-12 (chop, wash & keep aside. Reduce the amount of french beans if you are using broad beans)
  • Dill- 20g (wash, finely chop stalks & keep separately. After that chop the leafy part & keep aside)
  • Peas- 1 big handful
  • Sugar- 1 tbsp
  • Salt


In a cooker add all the green veggies. Adjust water to level the veggies in the pressure cooker. Close the cooker lid and take off the flame after 1 whistle. Open the lid after the pressure has reduced. Strain the veggies & keep aside.
In a deep frying pan (nonstick preferably) add butter. Add the chopped onion, sautΓ© the onions till golden brown in color. Drain the water & add the soaked rice, turmeric powder, salt & dill stalks. Mix well. Fry for 2-3 minutes on medium flame. Keep stirring. Next to add 1 cup of water. Mix, cover & cook on low flame. Check after 5-6 minutes. Now add the boiled veggies & half of the chopped dill mix & add some more water if required. Cover & cook till the rice is done. Keep stirring so that it cooks uniformly and doesn’t form lumps. Add sugar. Mix & cook for another 2-3 minutes.

Your Bean & Dill Pulao is ready. Remove from heat. Keep it covered after the cooking to get the nice aroma when you are going to have it! Serve hot with garlicky yogurt.
