This protein-rich rice preparation also presents a fiesta of colours, thanks to the use of a large variety of sprouts and veggies. Traditional indian spices add flavour to the rice, while the innovative use of pav bhaji masala imparts a tempting aroma to the vegetable preparation. The method adopted, of preparing the rice and veggies separately and then mixing them ensures that this mixed sprouts rice is conveniently moist and not too dry. It is as good as having a pulao and a subzi, but in a convenient one-dish format that you will love. Serve with a raita of your choice, and voila, you have a delicious and sumptuous meal.

Thank you for this recipe.. I made few changes to this ... I didnot make a paste of khus khus n kaju seeds as i wanted my biryani to be healthy. Also i used brown rice instead of basmati..i used chopped tomatoes instead of Tomato puree the taste is amazing of all sprouts and vegetables... This way it becomes healthy n my whole family had brown rice too...
