Dream Mushroom- Vegetable Broth Pulao(Pilaf) With Parsley and Yogurt

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 30 mins

This is my original recipe, created this very afternoon, while messing around in the kitchen wondering what to make. Since its a very special day for me today(being 4 years since I met my BF on the net on this day on ICQ at 8pm!), and since I love mushrooms, I decided to give everyone a home-made treat with mushroom pulao. Came up with this after a little thought and besides the taste, we all love the aroma of this rice while its cooking. I served this with spinach curry and a dollop of low-fat yogurt and I was in heaven!

What a flavorful side dish. The rice absorbed the flavor of the veggie broth. The garlic added another depth to the rice. I served this as a side dish for a lamb curry, and it was delightful. Thanks dear Char for sharing your creation that will go into my tried & true cookbook. :-)

This turned out to be an excellent side dish! I thought it would be too bland, but it is very flavorful. I used fresh mushrooms and an extra bouillon cube. Am thinking of all the different spices and veggies I can use next time, for a little variety.
