Mint Pulav -Pudina Saadam

I love making one pot meals.You can make a weekday lunch in no time. Today I made Mint Pulav and Carrot Raitha to go with it. My Hubby and Daughter loved it.

Mint has medicinal properties and is known to aid digestion. In general I try to use greens in our every day diet.
