Rice is the staple food of Indians. We consume it as plain rice with some accompaniment or any variety of rice dish. The variety of rice dishes are more popular with children.They love variety of pulav and biryanis. Kadai pulav is a tasty rice dish that you can prepare in half an hour. I use only carrot and peas for this recipe. Thus, there is no much chopping also involved.
Kadai pulav is ideal for fussy children. It makes a good brunch or lunch box menu. Children love colourful dishes.
