Now drain all the water from the basmati rice and add it to the veggies and mix well.

Yummy Veg Pulao is ready
Soaking the basmathi rice for loger time helps it to cook fast also grains dont stick to eachother
Dont overcook the rice else the pulao ill become mushy.
If using frozen peas and sweet corn...add it after adding the water in the cooker.
