This is a really nutritious recipe full of both protein and flavors. I remember visiting Juhu Beach during the evenings where we relished this delightful dish.

About Corn Soya Bean Tawa Pulao
This Corn Soya bean recipe will suddenly take your memories back to Mumbai ( if you have been there ) needless to say because the name itself is extremely popular there. They’re made on flat concave-shaped pans called Tawa and pulao as you’ll guess it’s pilaf.
The street-side stalls there use huge tawas in which they create pav bhaji, masala pav, and more dishes, and therein same Tawa makes this delicious Tawa pulao which gets mixed with those flavorful pav bhaji masalas.
The only difference is that here I have even added corn and soya chunks.
Soya bean needs no introduction as these are protein-rich legumes. The foremost interesting fact about them is – They combine with any food without affecting the flavor.
The spices and herbs make this dish aromatic with the added goodness of corns. You can use any Tawa or pan for this recipe.
What’s great about this pulao is that the vegetables in it are crunchy and an ideal balance of all the masalas are used.
