Veg Pulav is a fragrant rice dish made with basmati rice cooked with a variety of vegetables, aromatic spices, and sometimes whole spices like bay leaves and cloves. It is a flavorful and wholesome one-pot meal that combines the goodness of rice and vegetables. Rayatu, also known as Raita, is a yogurt-based side dish that complements the Pulav. It is made by whisking yogurt and adding finely chopped vegetables like cucumbers, onions, and tomatoes, along with a sprinkle of spices. Rayatu provides a cool and refreshing element to balance the flavors of the Veg Pulav.
