Vegetable Semiya Pulao

Vegetable Semiya Pulao

We had national holidays and I invited Sis to come over for breakfast so that we can spend sometime together with mom and dad , we work in same place but don’t get time to meet plus mom and dad always wait for these special moment where we can discuss everything under the sky …I didn’t tell sis that I made this dish with Ghee but the minute she tasted she caught me and her next line was , you will never reduce your weight , it’s nice to cheat sometimes with dieting but can’t compromise on taste ….
