Mixed Vegetable and Rice Pilaf
This traditional Indian rice dish recipe is packed full of nutritious vegetables and whole grains, as well as, plenty of flavors.A biryani, an Indian rice-based dish, is an ideal way to improve nutrition by augmenting the grain with a variety of vegetables. Traditional recipes sauté whole seeds, pods, or chiles to add complex, understated flavor. If you prefer to remove the whole spices before serving, skip the sautéing step. Instead, tie the seed mixture in a cheesecloth bag to cook with the rice and potatoes; slip it out when the dish is done. For a vegetarian entrée, add edamame for protein.
