This is one pot mixed vegetable pilaf  made  in pressure cooker. It is quick and easy to make and is super tasty.
It is also very convenient for lunch boxes. I had carrot and peas in hand so used those but you can use any vegetables you like.

The  flavors come from the whole spices that we use that is Bay leaf, cloves, cinnamon, big cardamom and cumin seeds.

Enjoy this pilaf(pulao) with yogurt and your favorite chutney!
