Tawa pulav is an Indian recipe that is often cooked with left over rice. This recipe is extremely simple to prepare and is widely cooked in India. You can use left over rice or you can use fresh boiled rice-- whatever's convenient for you. This recipe uses many Indian spices and different vegetables. Lets get started.

  • STEP 2: Lower the heat and let the onions turn a golden brown. Add the finely chopped ginger and garlic to the pan.
  • STEP 3: Now, add the green peas and finely chopped tomatoes. Mix the ingredients well.
  • STEP 4: Once you have added the vegetables, you can start adding the spices. Add the salt, chili powder, and coriander powder to the mixture.
