Mixed Vegetable Tehri (One Pot Rice Preparation with Seasonal Vegetables)


Yet another time for ‘Tehri’ lovers today I’m sharing the recipe of Mixed Vegetable Tehri. I have kept the recipe almost same as my previous post of Aloo-Matar-Gobi Tehri, only I have used all seasonal vegetables and made some changes here and there! Needless to say it came out so well! Before winter finally says good bye, try this awesome rice preparation. Serve it with Mixed Raita and roasted papad. I invited some guests, so I prepared Rustic Chicken Curry as side dish. Else it is tastes awesome just with some Raita.
