Hello Foodies,

Today I am sharing this simple, vegan, gluten-free and healthy Masale Bhat (vegetable pulao) recipe which is prepared using an instant pot and it is great for the busy morning. This is great to put in the lunch box too. It is a simple and one pot rice recipe, which doesn’t need much work. The flavors and spices which go through this dish are perfect. Masale bhat is always considered as a complete meal without any side dish to it. Also, it is often served as a rice dish in a thali. Prepare the spice mix masala ahead in advance and use it whenever you like to prepare this flavourful masala bhat.
          Addition of vegetables makes this rice more healthy and flavorsome. One serving of Masale Bhat has 5.4 g protein and 3 g dietary fiber.
