Easy Vegetable Rice~kids recipe

This is a quick and simple biriyani or very healthy, vegetable rice.
My son was told to bring vegetable pulao for a potluck kid’s party. I made this item for the kids.
They enjoyed it, since it’s less spicy and having an appealing smell of Mint leaves and other spices.
This is nicer when it’s cold, so u can even send this in the lunch box for the kids who like rice.
