Furthermore, I would like to highlight some easy and important tips while preparing the Mumbai tawa pulao recipe. First, make sure to cool the rice completely before preparing the tava pulao recipe. Otherwise, the rice turns mushy and you may feel the rice like khichdi. You can alternatively use leftover rice to hasten the process. also, feel free to add a variety of vegetables to make it more nutritious. Secondly, you can prepare the same rice with leftover pav bhaji curry too. Lastly, I have added chilli powder for the extra spice, it can be skipped. or perhaps, you can add it according to your spice preference. note that pav bhaji masala has sufficient spice heat in it.
