Tawa pulao with spring onion raita

I made this pulao with left over pav bhaji masala on the same day i made pav bhaji.I didnt have much of vegetables at home , so i  ended up adding bell peppers that enhanced the flavor.I must be the last one who is trying this happening trendy dish.It came closer to biryani somewhere i had that had bit of tangy and spicy taste.I dont remember much of things as of now i mostly look for what to cook next but not to where to eat next. ;-P  

Bhaji masala-1 cup
Water-2 cups
Rice-1 cup
Vegetable -1 cup ,chopped
(Peas,bell peppers)
Salt to taste

1.Add two cups of water to the same bhaji pan.
2.Add the vegetable and bring it to boil
3.Add the rice  and close lid.Let it cook for 10 minutes.
4.Stir in occasionally to not let the rice stick to the base
5.Once the rice is cooked,add in 2 tbsps of butter,stir  and serve hot
6.If needed,add little salt only when rice is cooked.

To make spring onion raita
Mix one cup of chopped spring onion raita to 1 cup of beaten curd and add salt to taste.
