Aloo - Gobi Tehri/Pulao - One pot meal

Tahiri or Tehri is a one pot dish which is similar to a pulao. A popular Awadhi recipe from Uttar Pradesh, its somewhere between a veg pulao and veg biriyani. Usually a Vegetarian Tahiri uses potatoes, cauliflower and peas, but there are many ways people make it and you can add other veggies as well. I had seen this one many years ago on a TV show and attempted it. Since then it's one of our favorites. Here I usually make only with potatoes and cauliflower. Sometimes I do add Peas but not always. This time its just Aloo Gobi Tahiri or Tehri. It is very similar to making a veg pulao as mentioned but not all masala's go in this one. Its tasty and easy as well. Let's see how it's done. Step by step images uploaded right below the recipe for easy reference.  While you are at this, don't forget to checkout other  One Pot Meals  on the blog. Ingredients: Serves 4  Rice 2 cups  Potatoes cubed 1 medium  Cauliflower separated into florets 1cup Oil 2 tablespoons  Cumin seeds

Oats Palak (Spinach) Paratha

A quick and filling breakfast definitely gives you the energy to take you through the whole day easily. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and we definitely must have a hearty one. This quick and easy Oats Palak paratha is super soft and very good option for kids who fuss about leafy vegetables. Its basic Palak Paratha with addition of oats to make it more filling. We all know the benefits of Oats and how nutritious they are. I add little bit of curd which makes these paratha's super soft. Also you can chop the spinach and add like for normal methi paratha's, but I blanch them and make a paste and add so there is no fuss eating. If you like you can simply add chopped spinach instead. Let's see how it's done. I  have added step by step image below for easy reference. This quantity yields about 12-15 paratha's. The dough will stay good in fridge for about 1 day.  Updated on 20th May 2021 - Youtube Video added  See Notes: ** Ingredients: Instant oats- 1 cu
