Ever since mom has come to the US, I have been getting the pleasures of eating all the stuff at home that I missed for 4 years! One of her recipes that I really like (and that I think I can make myself) is Vegetable pulao. Here is the recipe -

2 Cinamon sticks
1 Ripe tomato made into puree and mixed 
1 Onion chopped
1/2 inch ginger grated
1 Potato chopped
2 Carrot chopped into long slices
1/2 cup cauliflower chopped
1/2 cup beans chopped. 
1 Large spoon oil
Salt as per taste
1 Cup rice cooked
  1. Heat 1 spoon oil. Put jeera, tejpaat, pepper, cinamon, laung ang ilachi
  2. Fry onions until light brown. Fry grated ginger too.
  3. Put all vegetables and let them cook for some time.
  4. Once the vegetables are done, add tomato puree and stir for sometime.
  5. Add cooked rice and mix.
