Tawa Pulao | Mumbai Tawa Pulao | Pulao Recipes

Tawa Pulao is a popular Mumbai Street Food.  As the name suggests, it is made on a tawa.  The street vendors use a huge tawa, but at home it is difficult to make it in a small tawa. So you can make it in a kadai.  This pulao can be made with different combo of veggies and the main ingredient here is Pav Bhaji Masala.  This tawa pulao recipe can be made with leftover rice too.  It is very easy to prepare and quite delicious.  Tawa pulao tastes best with raita, yogurt, chips or papad.
