DIY nutritious vegetable pulao

Many of u might think the title is contradictory, pulao n nutritious??? Yes this is – I’ve used just 1tsp of ghee, coconut milk, carrot n beetroot juice, spinach juice n loads of veggies- convinced? N it tastes real good!

How to prepare 3 juices:Coconut milk – Add shredded fresh coconut into the mixer, and a little water πŸ’¦ n blend for few minutes until thick n creamy. Strain it n squeeze using a muslin/cheese cloth. Simple! Similarly prepare the below juices..
