For the second day of single serve dishes, I am here with one more easy breezy preparation of tawa pulao. Nowadays, I am always left with myself at noon and I hate to cook just for me. Either I cook rice and finish with curd and pickle or eat what I made for breakfast. But after selecting this theme, I made this just for me. But still I would go back to curd and pickle after this week.
Tawa pulao can be made with left over rice if making for single serve. That is what I did. It is very easy to make and tastes wonderful. Here is a simple version of tawa pulao which can be made within 15 minutes, if you have cooked rice at hand. I ate it with some carrot slices, but if you are making an elaborate meal, then make raitha to go with it. It would be great. As this is single serve, I am using 1 cup of cooked rice. But it still depends upon the person who is going to taste it. For some one with a heavy appetite, this may not be enough. So plan accordingly and add the other ingredients to proportion.
