Bengali Style Mixed Vegetable Sweet Pilaf Recipe is a very simple Bengali Style Vegetable Pulao that we prepare very often at our place. Normally I prefer to cook this pulao or pilaf during winter as fresh peas and carrot are available in abundance during winter. You can add beans too if you wish .

This ‘pulao’ is a little sweet as we Bengalis prefer ‘pulao’ to be a little sweet. You may discard adding paneer too but I love paneer; so I always add it in my pulao. ‘Gobindobhog Rice’ is a kind of aromatic rice available in West Bengal. You can use any aromatic rice for this preparation. Try this ‘pulao’ with any Veg or Non Veg preparation of your choice.
