Brown Rice Pulao with Saute BabyCorn and Onion
/Healthy One Pot Meal
Our Manali Trip-1/
Walking in Memory Lane with Brown Rice PulaoHi Friends,
After a long time yesterday i posted recipe for my First Blog Anniversary and forgot to tell you about our small but memorable trip to Manali i mentioned in my previous post. In this post i will post some of memorable pictures of trip. It was short but full of adventure trip. Weather was just so awesome there. We (specially kids) enjoyed a lot there. First time in life i did River Crossing in which you are hanged with a rope and belt in middle of the river and moved up and down to get wet in river water. being a coward i refused to husband to try it but my five years old son insisted on doing that. After so much convincing i agree with the term of sending my son with guard. Check picture below its fun to do that but its scary also. I will divide this trip in two posts as don't want to make one post too lengthy. Here we go-
Our bus was stopped in Mandi (100km before Manali) 5' o clock in the morning to get fresh, this is our VOLVO we traveled. It was so comfortable, spacious and clean that you will feel like travelling in Mercedes . Yes this bus is made by Mercedes company.
Our Bus was running along with this river
quite scary for me. can you see the distance between river and our bus. I took this picture from my seat without zoom
after reaching hotel at 9am we ordered our breakfast which was included in our Hotel Package. Everything was so fresh and yummy.
My God, i am hungry again
View from my room at hotel in Manali. You just have to cross the road and you will reach a beautiful point for adventure sports (see pics below)
After crossing road you will reach here and then you have to cross this wooden bridge to reach adventure sports like River Crossing.
or you can simply sit under these umbrellas, munch upon snacks and enjoy the nature. There is a big river behind this.
my daughter enjoying River crossing with guard. She was totally wet.
This is how they chill there cold drinks.
Water flowing in the river is chilled. you can't put your feet in it more then 10 seconds.
You will get all kind of snacks beside this river like chowmein, bhutta (corn), bhel puri, tea, coffee, cold drink and surprisingly most popular and consumed snack there was MAGGIE even i was surprised to see that.
FOR MORE SNAPS PLEASE READ MY NEXT POST AS I DON'T WANT TO OVERCROWD MY POST.

- If you want to enjoy real taste of pulao then please follow recipe as cooked brown rice have bit dry texture so to make it as one pot meal i added tomato puree and spices in it. You can enjoy it as it is or with any side dish.
- You can mix baby corn and onion in pulao but then it will loose its crunchiness. I preferred bit crunchiness so avoided to mix it in hot rice.
- You can choose spices as per your choice. You can also add some tomato sauce to enhance the flavor.
- You can also use your favorite veggies to top up. Just saute them a bit and spread on top when rice is almost done.
HOPE YOU WILL LIKE IT
