Broken Wheat Mint Pulav/Godhumai Ravai Pudina Pulav

While returning from india, i got 3-4 packets of Broken Wheat/Godhumai ravai. On and off i make some khichdi or upma with it. Tried out this Mint Pulav for our weekend lunch. It was very tasty and light. The Aroma of Mint and Coriander along with Pav Bhaji Masala, complimented well. After a round of Diwali Sweets and Eid Holiday's, it was really good to eat something light, healthy and also tasty!!!!
