Tawa Pulao Recipe | Mumbai Tawa Pulao Recipe | Tawa Pulao - Popular Mumbai Street Food Recipe

Tawa Pulao Recipe
Today's recipe is a popular Mumbai special, Tawa Pulao. This is a simple, easy to make mildly tangy, spicy rice with nice aroma. I have already shared a healthy version of Tawa Pulao with Brown Rice & Mixed vegetables , this is a kids friendly version with less vegetables and nice flavor. I often pack this for my kids lunch box along with Onion Raita or Potato Fry.

Tawa Pulao Recipe
In road side shops & chaat stalls, they make this pulao in a wide big tawa, it is fun to watch making any chaat recipes at road side shops, they cook fast with unique style. During our India trip, weekly twice or thrice we go out during evening time to enjoy some refreshments at street side stalls. My kids asked zillion questions about their stall and cooking on a busy street. As this was their first India visit everything was new to them and they had lots of fun too. Now off to the recipe..
